In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, David Whitehouse brings us the inside story of the astronauts, NASA engineers and political rivals that brought an end to the Space Race. 50 years ago in July 1969, Apollo 11 became the first manned mission to land on the moon, and Neil Armstrong the first man to step onto its surface. In the most authoritative book ever written about Apollo 11, Whitehouse reveals the true drama behind the mission, telling the story in the words of those who took part – based around exclusive interviews with the key players.
