Item #: Book-Saturn
The story of the Apollo moon landing is well known with many books covering the subject in great detail. However, very little has been written about the Saturn V Rocket-the most powerful ever built. Almost nothing has been written on the development, manufacturing and testing of the rocket stages. In this book for the first time, the detailed history of each Saturn V stage is presented. Features

There are lots of books on the moon landings, but few really good ones on the monster rocket that made the missions possible. Alan Lawrie, a space propulsion engineer, has penned a detailed account of how the rocket came to be, how it worked and what we can learn from it. The book comes with a special add-on DVD that features some rare Saturn 5 footage. Review by John Kelly Florida Today:
The story of the moon missions is well known with many books and films on the subject. Little has been written on the Saturn V rocket and next to nothing on the development, manufacturing and testing of the rocket stages.
