Review quote

Praise for R.D. Hall's Soyuz: a Universal Spacecraft


The Aerospace Professional


"Reading this extremely well researched book will show how this admirable concept, once very much on course to reach the moon earlier than the USA, became a victim of it's own diversity. The authors lead us through this tangled web of Russian design and decision process, which does evoke some sympathy for the frustrated engineers concerned and for a facet of the Russian programme, which could have promise so much. This is a superb acquisition for any library or student of the field."
