Space Conquest: The Complete History of Manned Spaceflight
by Francis Dreer
The greatest ever feat of science and technology in the history of mankind was when the USA's Apollo 11 landed men on the surface of the moon, and returned them safely to earth. The great ideological struggle of the Cold War between the USA and the Soviet Union was defined by the space race -- a race that was won by the Americans. This stunningly illustrated story of that race covers the Soviet and American space programs, Neil Armstrong's historic "one small step for man" in July 1969, and continues into the era of space stations and reusable spacecraft like the Shuttle.

How does this book compare to David Baker's History of Manned Spaceflight?

(At least I think it's David Baker, I mean the 20 year old large hardcover book with Ed White on the cover, that many use as a reference).

It's currently on pre order but I have to wonder whether 208 pages would ever do the book title justice...

All times are CT (US)
