The Moon Landing by Paul Mason


The Moon Landing by Paul Mason

This title explores the background and the aftermath of the moon landing of 20 July 1969, using this single event to act as a window onto a broader perspective of twentieth century history. It looks at the race for space, building up to actual lift off, then tantalizingly asks 'What if it hadn't happened?' Throughout the book 'moment in time' panels which use quotes and primary sources give the reader an impression of what it must have been like to be there. The final part of the book examines the legacy of the 'day that shook the world' in terms of its impact on history.
