The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II by Denise Kiernan

"That morning, the excitement coursing throughout the complex known as the Castle was infectious." This is the day in August 1945 after the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, when the residents of Oak Ridge (and the whole world) finally found out what they had been working so hard on for the last two years.

Definitely interesting would like to read it. When we first married, we lived in Oak Ridge. I loved it there. I think it's a lot bigger now.
