"Hamish Lindsay has done a marvellous job of telling the story of
manned space flight He has given his readers a sort of encyclopedia
of the beginning of man's quest for flight into space. This is
followed with a splendid description of the real time operations of
all of the major missions. As one who lived through the Camelot
period of space in the 60s and knows the trauma we all endured, I
am greatly impressed with the detail and authenticity of the
stories that Hamish so vividly tells. For example, as I read
Hamish's account of the Apollo 11 and 13 missions, I could again
imagine myself back in mission control reliving some of the finest
moments of my life...Those of you who are fortunate to read Hamish
Lindsay's account will be much richer for it."
