Product description

Review

" "Epic Rivalry" is history at its best, a fascinating story deeply researched and well told."
-- David Maraniss, author of "They Marched Into Sunlight: War and Peace, Vietnam and America, October 1967"
" "Epic Rivalry" is a stunning new book on the space race. Erudite yet entertaining, it clearly analyzes the events leading to the first lunar landing, as seen through American and Soviet eyes. It makes fascinating reading today and merits a spot on the bookshelf as a valuable reference."
-- Michael Collins, Apollo 11 command-module pilotand author of "Carrying the Fire: An Astronaut's Journeys
"" Beautifully written and highly informative, "Epic Rivalry" is an exceptionally engaging look back at one of the most compelling episodes of the Cold War-- the space race. Hardesty and Eisman make use of the trove of new information available in recent years to recreate the sense of wonder, excitement, and urgency that drove men and women on both sides of the Iron Curtain to make a reach for the new frontier of space. By successfully weaving the technical with the human, they have given readers a fresh view of one of humanity's greatest adventures."
-- Asif Siddiqi, author of "Challenge to Apollo: The Soviet Union and the Space Race, 1945-1974"
