Summary
"Only now, it is becoming clear how exceptional and unrepeatable Apollo was. At its height, it employed almost half a million people, many working seven days a week and each determined that 'it will not fail because of me.' Beginning with fighter pilots in World War II, Maurer traces the origins of the Apollo program to a few exceptional soldiers, a Nazi engineer, and a young eager man who would become president."--
Summary
A dramatic account of the Apollo 11 moon landing reveals the lesser-known contributions of soldiers, engineers and world leaders while sharing contextual insights into how the space program was shaped by important historical events.
