Review From User :

I'm not going to pretend to understand von Braun's math, or even to have processed every equation, but even without that, there lies exposed on these pages a mad and brilliant and gorgeous plan for going to Mars, assembled by a genius in 1948 using a slide rule. The foundations for NASA are here, along with fodder for the next 40 years of sci-fi to follow. It's like reading Verne's book about Paris in the 20th century except that von Braun applied all of this and built stuff. Astonishing.
