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."

The Soviet/Russian space program has already operated 4 space stations ( Salyut-series, Mir, ISS ). This book by BIS president Rex D. Hall focuzes on the story of the Soyuz spacecraft which has been used to bring both visitors and resident crews to the Space Stations. An integral element of Salyut , Mir and Internatioanl Space Station ISS operations, the small ferry has been the mainstay of cosmonaut transportation since 1967. In addition, since 1978 the unmanned freighter version called Progress has provided a means in which to regularly re-supply a space station and so prolong its orbital lifetime.
Using authentic Soviet and Russian sources this book is the first known work in the west dedicated to revealing the full story of the Soyuz series. The book describes Mission Hardware and Support Docking Missions from 1966 - 70 , the 1971-81 Soyuz Manned Ferry, the 1978 onwards Progress Cargo-Resupply Ferry , the 1979 - 86 Soyuz T manned ferry, the updated Soyuz TM, 1986 - 2002 to Mir and the very latest Soyuz TMA which has become the vehicle to bring crews to ISS since the accident of shuttle Columbia.
An excellent reference work (it includes a complete listing of vehicle production numbers ), the only minus I see is that this book is not available in Hardcover ...
Le livre décrit en détail chaque mission jusqu'aux premières missions de la version TMA. C'est le coeur du livre mais c'est un peu ardu à lire tout de même...
