The Forgotten Astronauts: A rarely told chapter of American spaceflight history

In the sands of the Moon, at a place called the Marsh of Decay, there lies an item which should not have been there. It is a tiny figurine, shaped to look like a man, and he is dead.  Behind him, a plaque is set in the soil, bearing fourteen names. Some are American, some Russian. This figurine was  called the Fallen Astronaut.  The crew of  Apollo 15 took it  there, without knowledge of their superiors, and they placed it at this site to commemorate  their  colleagues from two  countries  whom doom had struck before men landed on the Moon. But there are more names than these,  others  which  are  not  even  mentioned on  that  plaque,  and knowledge of their unhappy fates was lost. These men are

The Forgotten Astronauts 

who  were  chosen  to  write  history.  But  history  passed  over  them, sometimes tragically, sometimes tragicomically. Their stories tell a darker chapter of the American moon-landings. It is recounted in this book. With many full-colour images.
