Synopsis

Sputnik/Explorer I by Samuel Willard Crompton

The cold war served as the backdrop of the competition to find out which superpower - the United States or the Soviet Union - could reach outer space first. On October 4, 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik I, and the space race was officially on. Well-crafted prose, specific biographical sketches, and striking images make Sputnik/Explorer I an enthralling description of this unforgettable time in modern history.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
