Wemher von Braun, Revised Edition examines the life and career of the famed rocket scientist who supervised the development of the powerful rockets used by Apollo astronauts to reach the moon. Controversy surrounds von Brauns work in Germany during World War II, and this revised edition examines the complex issues brought to light by the availability of formerly top-secret documents.

A new chapter explores the significance of his wartime career as a V-2 rocket builder--and of his membership in the Nazi Party and commission to the SS (secret service). Containing new sidebars and expanded coverage of individuals such as rocket pioneer Hermann Oberth and science writer Willy Ley, the American Rocket Society, and von Brauns views on civil rights, this updated book also features a new chronology- recent publications on von Braun, rocketry, and the U.S.

space program- and helpful Web sites on related topics.
