The Alsos Mission was an effort during World War II by the Allies, principally Britain and the United States, as part of the Manhattan Project, to investigate the German nuclear energy project and to discern how far the Germans had gone towards creating an atomic bomb. Alsos Mission personnel followed close behind the front lines, and occasionally behind enemy lines, first in Italy, and later in France and Germany, searching for personnel, records, material and sites to evaluate the German nuclear project, further American research and prevent their capture by the Soviet Union.
