Format: Paperback
Wonderful book, have had it for several years and it is inscribed and signed by Guenter. With his passing this weekI pulled the book off the shelf and read some of my favorite parts of it again. Wonderful presentation of Guenter's experiences as "Pad Leader" for the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, ASTP, and early STS launches. Also reference his early life as a night fighter pilot for the German Luftwaffe during WWII. Guenter was a treasure trove of information and history of our early space programs. It is obvious the he was also very skilled and competent at his job which included managing all launch pad activities and being the last person the astronauts saw and talked with prior to being sealed into their spacecraft. It is a great read if you want a better understanding of the behind the scenes activities at KSC and some knowledge of funny incidents with the astronauts.

Mr. Wendt was the man who was on the spot, stuffing the guys with the right stuff into those tiny capsules. His recolections are informative, witty, and just a good read. All this would be enough but the DVD that comes in the back of the book is Priceless! Guenter tells old launch stories and shows the places (what's left of them) they happened.

A great holiday gift idea for anyone who is interested in NASA's Early/Glory Days.

This is an excellent book on the US manned Space program from its beginning. Excellent insite on programs, hardware, personnel combined in a very interesting story. Very enjoyable reading.
