FROM NAZIS TO NASA. The life of Wernher Von Braun.
Wernher von Braun, the father of modern rocketry, is a hero to some and villain to others. Here, Bob Ward presents a revealing portrait of the one-time Nazi Party member who helped develop the world's first ballistic missile - the infamous V-2 rocket - and went on to bring the United States into the Space Age and mastermind the Apollo moon-landing programme.
Bob Ward has written extensively about space since 1957. He lives in Huntsville, Alabama - 'Rocket City, USA'.
