Front page review in The New York Times Book Review July 29, 1979
"The authors have done an excellent job of telling the story of our team." Wernher Von Braun
". . . this book provides interesting and factual reading on one of the most influential technical achievements of the twentieth century." Astronomy
"The authors have made a commendable contribution in detailing this portion of important but frequently overlooked history. Moreover, they have presented it in a manner that focuses our attention on the past but at the same time encourages us to examine the future." Book World, Washington Post
". . . fascinating account that takes the reader from Germany and the V-2 rocket development to the United States and the Saturn moon rocket." Memphis Press Scimitar
"There is no doubt at all that some of the stories told in it are interesting, even thrilling. The tale of the spiriting of a V2 missile from Poland to Britain is worth a dozen chapters of James Bond." New Scientist (UK)
