First on the Moon: Based Upon Actual Events

David R Mann

With the dismantling of the Soviet Union, state secrets kept for many years have begun to come to light. With each startling revelation, the history of the cold war and the history of the space race had to be rewritten. Indisputable history turned out to be inaccurate:

The first man to orbit the earth?

Yuri Gagarin? Officially, yes, but the truth is revealed exclusively in this book.

Who was the first man to walk on the surface of the moon? Neil Armstrong? Officially, yes but again the answer lies solely within this book.

The book follows the life of Sergei Pavlovich Korolev, the architect of the Soviet Union's space program from the 1930's through the 1960's. His existence also a well kept Soviet military secret. Arrested, tried and convicted of sedition, he spent years imprisoned, including time in a gulag in Siberia. His team put the first Satellite, Sputnik into space, followed in rapid succession by the first dog and the first man. They also put the first man on the moon. How that was achieved and why it was kept secret is set out in this incredible adventure.
