This review is from: Building Moonships: The Grumman Lunar Module (Images of America: New York) (Paperback)
This relatively small book packs within it's pages a wealth of images of one of the twentieth century's masterpieces of aerospace egineeering: The Grumman Lunar Module, built at the Bethpage 'Ironworks' that saw the birth of generations of the US Navy's most capable aircraft, and, this 'funny looking spider'.
The bulk of the book consists of photos, drawings and plans of thee Lunar Module from initial conception to the final moon landing and those machines now in museums. Besides the machines themselves, many of the photos show the men and women who created, tested and prepared the LM's. It may just be me, but I believe that the dedication and commitment of each of them can be seen in these photographs.
In conclusion, a book of value to any one with even a passing interest in the space program and a fine tribute to the men and women of Grumman and the Apollo program.
