5.0 out of 5 stars First-rate history on a neglected topic, July 13, 2000
This review is from: Retro Rockets: Experimental Rockets 1926-1941 (Hardcover)
Unlike his first book Rockets of the World, Retro Rockets is not principally about scaling data for modellers. In this book he covers in great detail the pioneers of liquid fuel rockets with emphasis on Robert Goddard, a man whose achievements have not received anything like the recognition they deserve. But he also outlines the German and Russian rocket societies that flourished between the world wars, and spends a little time on the development of the first ballistic missile, the A4 (V2).
Some might find the detailed descriptions of the versions these early rockets went through a bit tedious, but for any rocketry buff or student of technical history Retro Rockets should be a must read.
