Praise for R.D. Hall's Soyuz: a Universal Spacecraft
The Aerospace Professional
"Reading this extremely well researched book will show how this admirable concept, once very much on course to reach the moon earlier than the USA, became a victim of it's own diversity. The authors lead us through this tangled web of Russian design and decision process, which does evoke some sympathy for the frustrated engineers concerned and for a facet of the Russian programme, which could have promise so much. This is a superb acquisition for any library or student of the field."


First english language book to review the development and operations of the Soyuz family of spacecraft
Takes the reader on a simulated, 'typical' flight aboard a Soyuz spacecraft from lift-off to orbit and from orbit to final landing
Describes all the applications and design upgrades of this versatile spacecraft, including the lesser-known military and unmanned variants
Reviews in detail the uses of the Soyuz spacecraft in ferrying crews to and from Salyut and Mir space stations and as an unmanned freight for regular re-supply of these stations
