Dr. Space; The Life of Wernher von Braun
SIGNED by author Bob Ward

Published by Naval Institute Press
Foreword by John Glenn.

From Nazi Party member to the director of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, Wernher von Braun continues to be a compelling and controversial figure in American history. He was the guiding light for American space flight, creating the breakthrough technologies of the Mercury and Apollo programs, yet his association with the Nazi party during World War II has overshadowed his accomplishments.

Bob Ward devoted more than ten years of research and conducted 150 interviews with von Braun's colleagues and brought his years of personal contact with von Braun to complete this behind-the-scenes biography. He looks deeply into the stories, heroics and contradictions to paint a full portrait of an enigmatic man.

Bob Ward, former space reporter and later editor of The Huntsville Times, has written extensively about space since 1957. He covered von Braun and his rocket team for years as a reporter.

Hardcover, 6x9 inches, 50 B&W photographs, 400 pages. SIGNED by veteran space reporter and editor, Bob Ward. $29.95 Pre-order now at http://boggsspace.com
