Description:
This is the story less of heroes than of a generation of engineers who made Apollo possible. It is thus the story of the men and women who stood where the shadow was deepest. Their story is told largely in their own words, and it tells of the unraveling of the simpler notions of personal success and national purpose that had given common meaning to the lives of their parents.
