Review of "Countdown to Atomgeddon-Europe"
In August of 1944, Nate and Blake were recalled to active duty in the Army to lead teams (Alsos) in Europe. Their mission was to secure needed materials and scientists in the race to build the first atomic bomb. The Germans and the Russians were also in the race for the same goal. John and Dino, classmates at UCLA, were recruited and reported to Major Powers, the coordinator of the Alsos teams. While Allied Forces were driving the Nazis out of Italy and France, Alsos teams relied heavily upon Enzo and Nora, leaders of the Italian Underground for help locating resources. The team's missions were successful and contributed to the Manhattan Project and the ultimate atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 3 Stars
