SHOOT FOR THE MOON The Space Race and the Extraordinary Voyage of Apollo 11

by | Read by Allan Robertson

History • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

The history of the U.S. manned spaceflight program is well documented, but this chronicle provides insights that even well-read listeners will find interesting. The period covered runs from roughly Russia's Sputnik in the 1950s through the Apollo 11 moon landing in the 1960s. Allan Robertson offers a smooth, solid narration. His generally even tone is suited to the work. But he alters that tone as needed to capture instances of drama, tragedy, humor, and historical importance without becoming cartoonish. With so many people involved, Robertson wisely chooses not to give each a distinctive voice. But the author clearly indicates quoted material, so there's never a question as to who is speaking.
