Synopsis: Here is Dr. Wernher von Braun’s incredible story – from his early years in Germany, where he gave birth to modern rocketry, to his arrival in the United States and his launching of the first American satellite, the first man on the moon and other stunning space exploration feats.
“Every page of Wernher von Braun’s life is a monument to the drama of adventure. Few people have been fighting so hard and, indeed, very few have been subject to so much criticism, so much jealousy, so much defeat—yet, very few have lived to be honored and to harvest the fruits of so many wonderful victories as has this man.”
Author Erik Bergaust has had the advantage of knowing von Braun as a friend, hunting and fishing companion, space business associate—and biographer—for more than twenty-five years. Thus, he has been able to present a dramatic portrait of an important personality and a 20th century hero.

Review: “The overwhelming message presented in this superbly researched book will reach every human concerned with the destiny of our world. The author...has succeeded in creating what is deemed to be a masterful classic—packed with stunning details and observations never revealed before in print. More than a biography, this book incorporates an entire encyclopedia of space flight, as well as a thorough exploration of Wernher von Braun—the man and the genius.” – Fred Blumenthal, Parade (Fred Blumenthal Parade)
