He knew he loved physics, but he had no idea how he would make a living at it. His country went to war close to the same time he went to college, and in only his sophomore year he was drafted, not into the military but into complex weaponry research, starting on a path to Los Alamos. Hull (physics emeritus, U. of New Mexico) worked at the leading edge of a new application of science from the outset and continued to do so into the Cold War when he conducted research, taught, and administered academic programs and departments. He describes the rigors of his experiences in the S-Site of Los Alamos, during the tests at Bikini, and later in the academic politics of Yale and other universities, and gives honest and frank commentary on the consequences of his work.
