There may have been a gulf between their knowledge prior to the discovery of fission and modern understanding, but almost immediately following that discovery we had working reactors and functional weapons. Certainly fusion devices were and are a different beast, but it comes down to less about any "secrets" and much more about money. The physics is the "easy" part, but even Oppenheimer and Teller wouldn't have been able to engage in much more than esoteric navel gazing if it weren't for a LOT of money.

When some people discover the truth, they just can't understand why everybody isn't eager to hear it.
