25/10/2019: Apollo 11 – The Moon Landing in Real Time By Ian Passingham

Published by Pen and Sword

Space has always interested me and anything based on a true story is always something I want to read. This book fitted into both categories and was something I saw and thought I must read.

It has a really interesting layout as each chapter is one day leading up to, during and after the launch. In each chapter there are smaller headers with information, quotes and stories from the time of the chapter about what is happening and about the country at the time.

I found the book very interesting, skipping from one subject to another quickly may not be for someone who likes to read a story from beginning to end smoothly, but I found it reminiscent of life and how the media and world talk about subjects now which immersed me into the book more.

I learnt a lot from the book as it doesn't only tell you the main points we have always heard when talking about the moon landing.

I would definitely recommend the book for anyone who has an interest in space, the moon landing or in understanding the culture and mindset of a country at the time of a breakthrough.
