For All Mankind
Between December 1968 and December 1972, twenty-four men captured the imagination of the world as they voyaged to the moon. For All Mankind presents a dramatic, engrossing, and comprehensive account of what President John E Kennedy called "the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked." For All Mankind is based on exclusive interviews with the Apollo astronauts, the most comprehensive and revealing firsthand accounts of space travel ever assembled. In their own words, the astronauts share the sights, sounds, thoughts, fears, hopes, and dreams they experienced during their incredible voyages.
In a compelling narrative structured as one trip to the moon, Harry Hurt recounts all the drama and danger of the lunar voyages, from the anxiety of the astronauts' prelaunch procedures through the euphoria of touchdown on the lunar surface.
