The complete story of the Saturn V Rocket is presented in this detailed history of each stage of the construction and testing process.

The lives of the first 45 rocket stages built for the Saturn project are charted, including unprecedented information on the dates, times, and performance parameters for each stage, the facilities used in production, rare documentation of the stages that malfunctioned and the engines that exploded along the way.
Details on the development of the F1 and J2 rocket engines and recently declassified photographs of the Saturn project are also included..
