Review:

The history of the intensely secretive Soviet space program makes a riveting backdrop to this lucid biography of the dominant figure in that program, Sergei Korolev (1907-66). A brilliant engineer and superb organizer, Korolev also possessed the cynicism and political cunning necessary to get his work done and protect his staff from a government so paranoid he was forced to work in anonymity, known only as the Chief Designer. The author, himself an aerospace professional, interviewed many of Korolev's colleagues in Russia and brings to life both his enormous achievements and his earthy personality.

From the Publisher:

Explores the Soviet space program and Sergei Korolev, the guiding genius behind it. The first book to detail the Soviet side of the spaced race, shows how a huge military-industry-university complex comprised of gifted, dedicated engineers and scientists met the gigantic challenge of pioneering the space age under a repressive, secretive regime with limited technology. Korolev emerged from imprisonment as a spy in a Siberian gulag to full freedom to lead the space program until his sudden death in 1966, which is still shrouded in mystery.
