Perhaps one of the most intriguing stories to come out of the
Manhattan Project was the delicate partnerships formed by the Military, the
Scientific Community, and some of America's foremost Corporations.
Often brought in "kicking and screaming", these
companies took on some of the world's most complex and vast industrial projects,
the likes the world had never seen.
Although most were already heavily weighed down with highly
critical war-time contracts, and although many thought what was being asked of
them was, in the worst case "impossible" and in the best case a
"recipe for failure", they all rose to the occasion and accomplished
the "impossible" - the delivery of enriched uranium and plutonium of
sufficient quantities to construct an atomic weapon.

take considerable time because there has not been much written about it
