Descrizione del libro

20 marzo 2013
Bob Davey, an aerospace-engineering professor and former Air Force pilot, captures readers with this fast-paced and imaginative story ignited when the Russians announce a manned mission to the moon. Air Force Colonel Brandt Strickland, a member of a Pentagon group studying the Russian plan, is certain that the Americans must be on the moon first and that we have less than two years to get there. At stake is control of the world’s energy supply. But he has no spacecraft, no crew, and a President vehemently opposed to his mission. The Moon War follows Strickland through the triumphs and tragedies of his incredible odyssey. The story volleys between America and Russia as the countries scramble to launch. Greed, corruption and deception, even at the very highest levels, cause the plot to twist and turn as the tension mounts. With extraordinary technical accuracy, Davey’s story assembles a cast of astronauts, cosmonauts, politicians and engineers drawn from real life who react to the unending trials with uncanny realism. Reflecting Davey’s experiences as an Air Force officer, an engineer, and an educator, The Moon War tells a tale that may well fill the pages of tomorrow’s newspapers.

4.0 su 5 stelle LIttle preachy, but a good read 26 novembre 2012
Di Joshua Godinez - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I bought this book at the Men of Mystery event in Irvine in 2012 where Bob Davey was an invited author who graciously signed my copy. The book has good characters, nice transitions, and a plausible storyline (putting aside the fact that commercial fusion reactors are probably never going to happen). Given that the book is 15 years old it reads a little dated with a lot of cold-war atmosphere. Russians versus Americans. Space shuttles. The nobility of the scientist. The greedy callousness of the capitalist. The nefariousness of spies. The hidden agenda of the bureaucrats. If you're in for a nostalgic read go for it. Don't let the title mislead you, though, there are no x-wings or laser-wielding robots. The word war is a far overreach. If it had been called something like "The Desperate Race for the Moon" you'd have a better idea of what you were in for through the first 75% of the book. All that being said, go ahead and pick it up. It's likely you'll like what you read.
