I figured I’d look into some more graphic books and Jonathan Fetter-Vorm’s “Trinity” seemed to me the perfect thing to start with as I’m quite familiar with the topic having read some biographies of the scientists behind the Manhattan project.

This short graphic book strikes me as surprisingly well balanced between history, science, politics and people behind the project- you find out a little about all of it in a way that won’t leave you grabbing for an encyclopedia unless you really really want to.

The black and white artwork is lovely and the historical figures are quite recognizable.

What I found as the biggest problem was that I would have liked it to deal with everything just a little bit longer and in more depth, but I guess that is also one of the better parts of it – you get a taste for it and to find out more you can turn to the books listed at the end of this one.
