From an unlikely friendship with HG Wells, who coined the term 'atomic bombs', and a journalist's interest in the work of Rutherford in the 1930s, this study traces Churchill's association with nuclear weapons up to the end of his political career, when the H-bomb threat had become an obsession. Written by the award-winning biographer of quantum scientist Paul Dirac, this is a book full of political and scientific personalities and intrigue, revealing an unfamiliar side of Britain's great war leader.
