9780007209941: Space Race: The Battle to Rule the Heavens
Críticas:

‘Lucid, pacy and readable.’ Bryan Appleyard, New Statesman

‘This fascinating book illuminates the complex relations between Germany, America and Russia during the space race of the Cold War years…’The Space Race’ is much sharper than the usual television tie-in … Heroes, villains and victims populate this gripping story.’ Maggie Gee, Daily Telegraph

Praise for Deborah Cadbury:

‘The Lost King of France’:
'This is history as it should be. It is stunningly written, I could not put it down. This is the best account of the French Revolution I have ever read.' Alison Weir

‘The Dinosaur Hunters’:
'Beautifully structured and sympathetically narrated, Cadbury's book benefits from having a subject that successfully brings together science, suspense and sentiment. Something for everyone, then.' Miranda Seymour, Sunday Times

Reseña del editor:

From the author of ‘Seven Wonders of the Industrial World’, the paperback edition of the TV tie-in charting the shocking but true story behind the space race – and the ruthless, brilliant scientists who fuelled it.

With the end of the Cold War it is now possible to reveal its generation of secrets and cover-ups, bringing an historical opportunity: the unmasking of the true heroes and villains behind the race to be the first to conquer space.

This is one of the greatest stories in history, beginning in the throes of the Second World War and spanning through to the moon landings. With the US and Russia pitched against one another during the Cold War, it was the race to create the most powerful rocket and dominate the world, culminating in 1969's 'giant leap for mankind'. The most pioneering and high-risk experiments ever undertaken cost untold millions – and hundreds of lives, as mistakes were made, some too horrific to be made public.

It is a tale that plays out against a backdrop of communism and espionage. Buried within this multi-million-dollar battle between nations, are the dramatic accounts of the individuals who seek to be the winners at any cost. With ex-Nazi Wernher von Braun on the American side pitted against the enigmatic Sergei Korolev on the Soviet side, this revealing new history shows the extent to which politics and personal ambition combined to create an explosive race for the glory of victory.
