If you have an interest in the technology and theory of space travel, in the basic elements of astronomy to be understood as fundamental to travel in space, in a sufficient knowledge of the subject of physics required to understand the technical aspects of space travel, you will be interested in this book. The book is written with ample exercises that will take you step by step to each new level of understanding the immense undertaking that was Apollo 11. It is written with the idea in mind that even if you find some parts difficult, you can continue on and still understand the theory involved in the achievement that was the moon landing arid departure. You will be amazed at the immensity of the Saturn rocket that launched the Apollo crew into space. By the time you have progressed to the actual lift-off of Apollo from earth, you will understand rocket propulsion and trajectory in space, lofting requirements to place satellites in orbit, and the timing of the elliptical path of the moon in its orbit about earth. More importantly, you will be able to make all of the calculations required to do and to understand all of these maneuvers. You will have studied the basic laws that govern the motion of the planets about the sun and be able to calculate the vast distances that separate objects in space using the speed of light. You will make the final flight of Apollo back to earth and do the calculations that land the entry vehicle in the proximity of the Johnson Islands, but far enough from the Hawaiian Islands-to assure a safe landing in the Pacific Ocean.

Like every community in America, young men from Puyallup put on the uniform and went off to fight in far-off parts of the world in 1941. Neighbors of all ages joined the war effort as factory and farm workers, air raid watch and Red Cross volunteers and war bond drive supporters. A relocation camp at the Puyallup Fairgrounds called Camp Harmony housed interned Japanese American citizens. And dozens of young servicemen who left home never returned. This is their story--a small Pacific Northwest town and a group of what Tom Brokaw dubbed the "Greatest Generation." Author Hans Zeiger preserves the journey of extraordinary people amid a violent and changing world.

Read the Foreword Clarion book review of The Life of Stuart O. Van Slyke. In this autobiography compiled from old diaries and letters, Stuart O. Van Slyke recounts his adventures as a young man born to hardship in the early 20th century. He recalls how he overcame his background through his own grit, imagination, and the support of his family and friends. From a 21st century point of view, Stuart's unsupervised childhood seems carefree. Virtually on his own from the beginning, Stuart worked his way through college, where he was introduced to the Army through ROTC, and was the first of his family to graduate. He was called to active duty on June 30, 1941, as a second lieutenant, but his true military career started on Pearl Harbor day. This turned out to a pivotal event in the shaping of his life. One of the highlights of the book is his service in the North African Campaign and his passionate yet sensitive command of the 78th Fighter Control Squadron, and later on the staff of the Allied Air Command of Corsica. The war's ending found him in Korea in military government in 1945, where he assisted in the start of South Korea's return to the community of countries who were no longer enslaved or ruled by despots. He had a real bird's eye view of the development of the 38th Parallel dilemma that plagues us even today. At the age of 29 in 1946, he was a lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserves, and a civilian again, who wondered what he was now going to do.
