Werner the war criminal? - the great unspoken,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wernher von Braun: The Man Who Sold the Moon (Hardcover)Whatever its flaws, this is a necessary book, as too many people are in the dark about Operation Overcast and Operation Paperclip - the American conspiracies to recruit Nazi scientists. To argue that von Braun was not a war criminal is to miss the point. It is necessary to have the debate and controversy in the public domain. History is written by winners and winners tell lies - or, at the very least, package the truth so it contains only the good bits.
