KIRKUS REVIEW

Rocket City is not Cape Canaveral, Florida, but Huntsville, Alabama, home of the Army's massive missile and booster programs, and anyone on the lookout for a jampacked if jerky, jumbled-up low-down, will find it here in Bergaust's babbling prose. Hero of the book is Wernher Von Braun (almost every phase of the space program, including the lunar one is pushed and planned according to a schedule published by Von Braun 10 years ago.) Smashing in scope, sloppy in script.
