2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chariots for Apollo has become a standard reference for all who examine the American exploration of space. The Apollo spacecraft was developed as a means of accomplishing President John F.

This book not only tells the important story of the development of the Apollo Command and Service Modules, and the people who designed and built them, but also recounts the stirring exploits of its operational life from orbital missions around Earth testing equipment to the Moon and back
