Although much has been written about the first men to set foot on the moon, those first hesitant steps would not have been possible without the efforts of the designers and technicians assigned to Project Apollo. Building Moonships: The Grumman Lunar Module tells the story of the people who built and tested the lunar modules that were deployed on missions as well as the modules that never saw the light of day. This is the first publication to chronicle the visual history of the design, construction, and launch of the lunar module-one of the most historic machines in all of human history.

I've seen a couple of other books dealing with the Lunar Module (including an original LM pilots flight manual), but this one beats them all as far as photo reference goes. There are numerous photos that I've never seen anywhere else, along with informative figure captions. The only error I found was on page 109. The top image misidentifies the Apollo 15 (LM-10) as the Apollo 14 LM. There is very little supporting text other than that found in the figure captions. An excellent book about the Apollo Lunar Module. Very happy I ran across this one.
