    A richly detailed and dramatic account of one of the greatest achievements of humankind. At 9:32 A.M. on July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 rocket launched in the presence of more than a million spectators who had gathered to witness a truly historic event. It carried Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Mike Collins to the last frontier of human imagination: the moon.

    Joseph says: "DeJavous"

    Overall

    The best narrative of the Apollo missions I ever heard or read. Spell-binding even though you know how it turns out.

    Escaping certain death, not once but several times, lies at the core of this riveting, real-life story of an American soldier during World War II. In One Man's War: The WW II Saga of Tommy LaMore, a B-17 airman vividly details his experiences in war-ravaged Europe, from the horrific to the romantic and beyond.

    Randall says: "Prepare to be engaged"
    "Fascinating and unbelievable"
    Overall

    This book started out as a pedestrian war memoir but after being shot down over France this man's trek back to the Allied lines through the French resistance, prison camps and then with the Russians is one of the most complelling stories I have ever heard or read - as a student of WWII that covers a lot of ground. You won't be disappointed.
