In a world where the U.S. only fought Japan, and Germany is triumphant in Europe, the Nazis learn of Oak Ridge, and the problems it could cause for their planned invasion of Britain. A combined bombing & strike-force insertion is planned to take out the facility and it's researchers.
Well, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be - but that would be hard to do. 'Course, I suspect that the "Technical Editor's" job basically boiled down to taking some rough ideas from Newt, and doing the actual writing
part of the book - if for no other reason than I've never heard of the job "Technical Editor" before...
It's basically straight military fiction, most of it revolving around the planning, execution, and fighting off of the strike on Oak Ridge - and but for the AH theme, it could be a middling Tom Clancy book.
Danger, Will Robinson!
Much to your surprise, you will discover in the last chapter that this book had at least
one unwritten sequel planned, and thus it just sort of ends in the middle of the setup for the next book (and as sales were...disapointing...for the first book, a next book that is wildly unlikely).
And this setup strikes me as stretching disbelief just a bit.
Not something I'd recommend buying, but if you're really
bored, and it's available at the library...
