[2015] Brock Roggie: Trinity: A Graphic History of the Atomic Bomb

This novel is a useful tool for the insturction of the Atomic Bomb. Since this graphic novel examines many aspects of the Atomic Bomb including the science, and impact on World War ll and world relations. That said, this novel would work well in a WWll unit of an American or world hisotry class for approprieate ages.

-One great aspect of this novel, is its validity and relvance to a historical topic that is not well documented. This allows for imaginatin and perspective interpretation as this novel is based on many of the actual interactions between J. Robery Oppenheimer and his collegues. -I particularly like the historical significance and perspective of this novel, which makes it a useful and educational read for students of many age groups. -This book is a graphic novel.-I highly recommend this novel as it is enlightening to the impact, creation and emphasizes the senstive ideologies that were focused about this project which is highly intriguing.
