This book, a companion volume to the biographical memoir, is a unique collection of photographs compiled from von Braun's life, spanning his childhood through Peenemunde, White Sands, Redstone and NASA-Marshall Space Flight Center to his final years in Washington, D.C.
"… this is a treasure for those who never met, heard, or saw von Braun…" -- Marsha Freeman, 21st Century, Spring 1994.
"The collection of photos includes many from personal archives which have never before been published. Altogether they provide a
remarkable insight into the life and work of an outstanding space pioneer." -- Spaceflight, Vol.36, May 1994
"After a pictorial review of the rocket development facilities in Germany and a White Sands, the Redstone Arsenal, and the Marshall Space Flight Center in the United States, there is a selection of color plates that are the Real history of space exploration." -- Marsha Freeman, 21st Century, Spring 1994
