It was free from the 27th to the 31st of March.

It's the memoirs of my aunt, Lorna Arnold, OBE (1915-2014), who died a couple of days ago. She was a noted British nuclear historian who worked for the UK Atomic Energy Authority for nearly 40 years. She wrote seminal books on the Windscale accident, nuclear weapons tests in Australia, and Britain's H-Bomb programme. 

After a childhood of rural poverty in the south of England, she studied at the University of London and at Cambridge. Her work at the War Office and the Foreign Office during World War II led to postings to Berlin (immediately after the German surrender - still a bomb-devastated and lawless city) and Washington. A decade later, a chance encounter resulted in her joining the UKAEA, where she worked with many of the scientists and leaders who established Britain's nuclear agenda.

It's a Kindle version that's free, of course, but if you don't have a Kindle you can still read it - just download a free Kindle app for your computer.

If you want a taster before going to the trouble of downloading and installing that Kindle app, and you don't mind the taster being my selected extracts (!), I've got a selection of extracts on my website: clive.semmens.org.uk/index.htm…
