9780091928377: Moonshot: The Inside Story of Mankind's Greatest Adventure

A thrilling and revealing account of one of the defining moments in human history — the 1969 moon landing.

In 1969, people across the globe gathered around television sets to witness one of mankind’s most historic moments — the first moon landing. Following this epic undertaking from its very beginning — a product of the Cold War and America’s desire to flex its international muscle — through to its aftermath, Moonshot goes beyond official accounts of the Apollo 11 mission to tell the real, untold story of an event known the world over.

From the fraught and often bitter relationships between the three men destined to make history — hot-headed Buzz Aldrin, easygoing Michael Collins, and the inscrutable Neil Armstrong — to the moment when, just minutes before Armstrong and Aldrin were about to reach the surface of the moon, their equipment failed and alarms rang out, Dan Parry reveals how the mission could so easily have gone terribly wrong, and America’s great triumph have become a national disaster.

Based on extensive research and interviews with many of the leading participants, Moonshot describes in nail-biting, page-turning detail every step of a remarkable and perilous mission that has captured the imagination of generations then and since.

About the Author:

Dan Parry is a former BBC journalist and now Head of Research at Dangerous Films. He is the author of D-Day and Blackbeard.

Review:

"Readers in a quest of a gripping and thoughtful paperback account should set their coordinates for Dan Parry's Moonshot, which is far better written that your average "accompanying the major television factual-drama" book." * Daily Telegraph *

It didn t matter that they were now three miles beyond their target site, that communications were dropping out and that they were running low on fuel. All that mattered to Neil as he searched for a safe spot to land was that boulders littered the surface below. Thirty seconds , called mission control.
