||5 of 5 people found the following review helpful.| Hanford History|By Sharon|I worked at Hanford from 1973 to 2012 and from the history I have been a part of, this book is true to the facts. I appreciate the information conveyed in this book - it's a keeper. UPDATE: I've RETIRED and read the book again, more slowly. The amount of research contained in this book is amazing. The author must have incredible patience and editorial|From Library Journal|Given current concerns about the safe disposal of by-products from nuclear weapons and power plants, this is a highly relevant historical work. Gerber reminds us that some communities have already confronted this issue by telling the story

The Hanford Site in southeastern Washington state was built by the Army Corps of Engineers and the DuPont Corporation during World War II to produce plutonium for America's first atomic weapons. The gigantic facility was immediately successful, producing and delivering in less than two years the plutonium for the world's initial atomic explosion and for the bomb dropped on Nagasaki that effectively ended World War II.

The first complete history of Hanford was mad...
