The Girls Of Atomic City A Must Read [VIDEO]

Had Denise Kiernan been my high school American History teacher, I probably would have pursued a career in education. I’m saying that her storytelling of the women who helped win World War II is unmatched in her New York Times Bestseller, The Girls Of Atomic City. Who knew that in the wilderness of Tennessee, a secret city would be built that would escape world detection.

How could such a place entice young women from all across the South, to the tune of 75,000 residents, using more electricity than all of New York City inside huge factories in the middle of nowhere? Denise Kiernan happens to rescue one of the most interesting and forgotten true chapters of our nation’s history.

The read is as fascinating as the voices of some of the women who are now in their eighties and nineties. No one before Ms. Kiernan ever thought to talk with the everyday factory workers who didn’t know exactly what they were accomplishing, just that it would bring the war to an end sooner. And when World War II ended, only then did these workers discover what they did changed the world. It was a personal pleasure to chat with noted journalist, historian and award winning author, Denise Kiernan.
