The Apollo Story book . Beautifully done within the tight space constraints of the series, even if ‘Sea of Tranquility’ gets mis-spelt a couple of times.

When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the surface of the Moon in July 1969, it marked the pinnacle of the Apollo programme and a victory over the Soviets. But victory came at a terrible price, as politicians drove engineers forwards, beginning with the disastrous Apollo 1 launch-pad fire that killed three astronauts, and ending with the unfolding drama of the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission

The Apollo Story (Story (History Press)). Author:John Christopher. Each month we recycle over . million books, saving over 12,500 tonnes of books a year from going straight into landfill sites.

When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin of Apollo 11 stepped on to the surface of the moon in July 1969, it marked the pinnacle of eight years of manned spaceflight. Eight short years saw not only incredible technological advancement, but also the unbelievable bravery of an elite team of astronauts who rode the most powerful rockets ever devised. The space race had been in response to JFK’s promise to the nation and the need to beat the Russians at all costs at a time of intense political rivalry. But victory came at a terrible price with the disastrous Apollo 1 launch-pad fire that killed three astronauts and the dramatic, ill-fated Apollo 13 mission. Twelve men walked on the Moon while mankind discovered a new perspective on planet Earth.

The Apollo story is a small pocket type book with just over 100 pages.
There are a lot of pictures packed into such a small book and side panels giving you various interesting facts for example, John Young was the only astronaut to fly Gemini, Apollo and the space shuttle.
The main part of the book is broken into chapters, each detailing one significant launch starting with Apollo 7 and going right through to Skylab. The start of the book has a brief summary of the Apollo rocket and Von Braun and the last chapter has a brief summary of potential future NASA missions (Project Orion).
Each chapter summarises the main parts of each mission. There is little room for anything detailed although at the back of the book there are cut-out diagrams of the CSM, Apollo stack and LM amongst other diagrams.
Overall it only took me about 2 hours to read through and the summaries were very good. Although this is a British book, speeds, weights etc. are given in both imperial and metric units so it would appeal to readers on both sides of the pond.
A good summary with a lot of information packed into such a small book but don't expect a detailed analysis like some other books.
