4.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point, 12 Sep 2011
By 
Pedro Fortunato "P Fortunato" (Portugal) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Launch Vehicles: Heritage of the Space Race: 4 (Pocket Space Guides) (Paperback)
This is a great book for those looking for generic information on launch vehicles. It covers past and present of all space agencies. The book is part of a series of books on space that share the same cover appearance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pocket rockets!, 12 April 2006
This review is from: Launch Vehicles: Heritage of the Space Race: 4 (Pocket Space Guides) (Paperback)
Another good effort from the people who produce the Apollo Mission Reports. Although this is a pocket-sized book, it packs in a history of rockets: from 19th century pioneers through Robert Goddard, Werner Von Braun, NASA, Energia and today's latest ESA launch vehicles.

The first fifty pages describe describe the machines and some of the politics which culminated in the colossal Saturn 5 launcher and NASA's moon landings. The remaining fifty or so pages are given over to an excellent and rare selection of colour photos of just about every launcher the space enthusiast could wish to see, split by country or consortium.

Informative and visual, this is a great little reference to have at hand when reading other space books.
