What If Nazi Germany Had Built the Atomic Bomb?

Seventy-two years ago yesterday, the United States dropped the atomic bomb for the first time. The obliteration of Hiroshima left at least 90,000 Japanese soldiers and civilians dead. Three days later, mankind’s first nuclear salvo was followed by the second (and hopefully last) use of nuclear weapons. The apocalyptic mushroom cloud over Nagasaki and the 39,000 casualties that accompanied it were enough to force Japan’s surrender in World War II six days later.
