From School Library Journal:

YA Nuclear weaponry in the U.S. has been a top secret subject since its invention in the 1920s. Hansen here presents an encyclopedic discussion of all of the various nuclear explosives developed, tested, and used by the U. S. Department of Defense. Much of the material was declassified for this book, and Hansen emphasizes his opinion that the secrecy was and is unwarranted. He provides technical details of the physics concepts, as well as political and tactical justification for development of various individual warheads. Students maturing in a nuclear age may wish to be well informed about the sources of their possible destruction; they may also be curious about the scientific principles used to design the weapons. The thorough index and footnotes, as well as appropriate photos, charts, and diagrams make this title a useful one in schools with strong physics curricula .Jim Boyd, Episcopal High School, Bellaire

From Library Journal:

This impressive sourcebook belongs with Michael Stephenson and Roger Hearn's Nuclear Case Book ( LJ 9/15/84) and Thomas B. Cochran et al.'s Nuclear Weapons Databook ( LJ 2/15/84). (The former is more philosophically oriented; the latter has data on a larger number of weapons.) Hansen's is the best on World War II developments and after. Especially good are his accounts of Pacific testing after the war; hydrogen bomb development; and missiles, safety devices, fuses, etc. An excellent, understandable section on the nuclear physics of the bombs makes this good for informed readers.
