Review

"Surpasses all previous books about [von Braun]. . . . Deeply researched, vigorously written, and balanced in its judgments."—The Boston Globe"A serious, important book that does justice to its subject's moral complexity and place in history."—Los Angeles Times Book Review “Neufeld's thoroughly satisfying biography . . . written in clear, fast-paced prose, offers the most complete, fully documented and critical account that the imperfect documentary record is likely to yield.”—The New York Times Book Review “A historian's masterpiece, will become the definitive biography.”—American Scientist
