With succinct text and striking graphic designs on almost every page, this book tells the exciting story of Apollo 11 and the role played by NASA engineer John C. Houbolt in landing Americans on the Moon and returning them safely to Earth. The book contains more than 40 carefully selected historic photos that capture one of mankind's greatest achievements. Although astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin have been rightfully applauded for their heroic efforts, Time magazine described John Houbolt as "Apollo's unsung hero." This book shines the spotlight of historic recognition on Houbolt and weaves his compelling story into the broader narrative of America's first manned Moon mission.
