In the Shadow of the Moon
A Challenging Journey to Tranquility, 1965-1969
A detailed account of the competition between the U.S. and Soviet Union to land a man on the moon draws on interviews with astronauts, cosmonauts, technicians, and scientists, as well as little known government documents, to chronicle the golden age of spaceflight and the experiences, aspirations, and determination of the people who made the first moon landing possible.

Drawing on interviews with astronauts, cosmonauts, their families, technicians, and scientists, as well as rarely seen Soviet and American government documents, the authors craft a remarkable story of the golden age of spaceflight as both an intimate human experience and a rollicking global adventure. From the Gemini flights to the Soyuz space program to the earliest Apollo missions, including the legendary first moon landing, their book draws a richly detailed picture of the space race as an endeavor equally endowed with personal meaning and political significance.
