Unfortunately, I didn't learn much about the space program or Wernher von Braun from reading this book. It was short on evidence and long on conjecture, assumption, and pejorative insinuation. Von Braun was a footnote to the author's opinion about Germans.

Linda I see you're reading about the space program. My Dad worked on Mercury/Gemini programs and knew the first seven astronauts and met von Braun. We were in St. Louis at the time and he worked for McDonnell (now McDonnell/Douglas). I am a HUGE space program fan!!
