About this product
- DescriptionOn 20 July 1969, US astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. This is the story of the Apollo 11 mission and the 'space hardware' that made it all possible. This manual looks at the evolution and design of the mighty Saturn V rocket, the Command and Service Modules, and the Lunar Module. It describes the space suits worn by the crew and their special life support systems. We learn about how the Apollo 11 mission was flown - from launch procedures to 'flying' the Saturn V and the 'LEM', and from moon walking to the earth re-entry procedure.

The technical guide to Apollo.
I am not sure this book can really be called a Workshop Manual, but it is an excellent historical reference book. It will not tell you how to disassemble and service anything, but rather gives a technical overview of the major components that went into making Apollo fly. Taken for what it is, it's a book well worth having.
