9780826355942: Moonshots and Snapshots of Project Apollo: A Rare Photographic History

In this companion volume to their extraordinary book of rare photographs from the Mercury and Gemini missions, John Bisney and J. L. Pickering present the rest of the Golden Age of US manned space flight with a photographic history of Project Apollo.
Beginning in 1967, Moonshots and Snapshots of Project Apollo chronicles the program's twelve missions and its two follow-ons, Skylab and the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project. The authors again draw from rarely seen NASA, industry, and news media images, taking readers to the Moon, on months-long odysseys above Earth, and finally on the first international manned space flight in 1975.
The book pairs many previously unpublished images from Pickering's unmatched collection of Cold War-era space photographs with extended captions--identifying many NASA, military, and contract workers and participants for the first time--to provide comprehensive background information about the exciting climax and conclusion of the Space Race.

From the Author:

As long-time manned spaceflight enthusiasts, we noticed that almost every book on the subject has drawn from the same commonly-available NASA photos, so a certain amount of image fatigue can eventually set in. As a result, readers have not been exposed to a much broader range of photos that provide a far richer context of how we accomplished our early manned conquest of space.  
It was our primary goal to provide a much more comprehensive look - quite literally - at the people, equipment, processes and locations involved in this great adventure than has been available until now. It's sort of like going way beyond the "greatest hits" album, although we do include what we believe is the most famous image from each flight to help orient the reader. This is volume II, which covers Apollo, Skylab and ASTP.
We also realized that the captions in most space books don't provide extensive descriptions, so we went into significantly greater detail, which means the captions become something of a narrative. That helped with another goal, which was to identify as many of the rank-and-file space workers pictured as possible, since they are rarely given their due. We also enjoyed meeting and getting input from many of these people, as well as from a number of astronauts. So putting this book together really became a labor of love intended to share our mutual enthusiasm for this amazing piece of history.
