Customer Review

on 16 July 2013
Despite the blurb, it is not so much the race for space that makes this story interesting, it is the way in which propaganda, paranoia and mis-information formed the basis of the nuclear arms race. The book does nothing to convince that the launch of Sputnik was anything other than a footnote in the history of the cold war.

It is an easy enough read and the author has done a good job of explaining the technical issues in layman's terms. For anyone who has watched or like me is watching Oliver Stone's, "Secret History of America", this makes for excellent background reading.
