Splashdown!: NASA and the Navy

Those of us who thought we had written all the books about space flight missed this one. We never heard many of the tales to be found between these covers. Splashdown is a fun, entertaining, informative read." .. Jay Barbree, NBC News and co-author of the best-selling "Moon Shot" The first ever publication detailing the Navy's role in manned spacecraft recovery starting in 1961 and continuing into 1975, from Alan Shepard's initial sub-orbital mission to the Apollo-Soyuz flight which inaugurated the first space collaboration between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Splashdown, NASA and The Navy takes the reader through a detailed explanation of how recovery forces, on land, sea, and in the air, were developed and deployed across the globe to be trained and ready for any and all emergencies and eventualities."
