Item description for Secrets Of The Space Age: The Sacrifices and Struggles To Get To The Moon; The Aftermath: What Happened After Lunar Mission, Intrigue and United States Space Heros Betrayed by Sr. Winterstein William E....
This unique and intriguing book is an excellent account of what really happened before and after Man walked on the moon. Behind the scenes accounts from insiders reveal events that fill in the gaps about the history of space exploration. No matter how skilled the writers of history, you are always getting the story secondhand. SECRETS OF THE SPACE AGE offers readers the opportunity to go right to the source. These men were there! This book may shock readers, but it will also enhance the appreciation of the glories of this great human adventure.
The book contains the little known history of the early years of man's desire to travel into space, and reveals the events that took place after the Americans walked on the moon, including: the true story about what caused the breakup of the German rocket team, as told by Werhner von Braun to his personal secretary; details the practices of a sinister group within the U.S. Justice Department; and, most importantly, the humiliation actively brought to bear against the very people who struggled to put Americans on the moon.

Troubling Secrets indeed! Sep 17, 2005
Lt. Colonel William Winterstein should be commended for his courage in exposing the deep secrets of the Space Program. Upon finishing this book I came away with two impressions. The first being how suppressed the history is of the fact that it was the German Scientist who propelled the U.S. into space and on to the moon. It's amazing how neglected and hidden this fact is, as if it would be an embarrassment to our country.
The other of course is the much more troubling fact; that these great scientist were targeted by the DOJ's Office of Special Investigations for obviously nothing more than vengeful political gain. Now, years after his prosecution, Arthur Rudolph's story is one of our nations greatest tragedies. The conduct of the OSI, from the Directors Rosenbaum & Sher, on down to the prosecuting attorney's is a story of government sanctioned terrorism. There's no other way to state it, sheer, appalling unjust reign of terror.
The fact that despite the clear and wrongful conduct of Neal Sher as Director of OSI (who has since been disbarred for his actions in steeling from WJC's Holocaust victims relief funds), that he goes un-prosecuted for his crimes continues to be a great mystery. It demonstrates that some people are above the laws and some groups have the powers to control the judicial system of our government.
Perhaps herein lies the interesting fact that while the book was published in August, this site has book sellers selling used books for $12. Is this to give an impression the book and its contents are worthless? Look at who endorsed the book and what they have said! Clearly, some people have much to hide. This book should be required reading by Aviation Historians as well as any and everyone interested in knowing just how corrupt and 'sold out' our government can be!

Pat J. Buchannan & Edgar Mitchell Review Book plus many others. Sep 10, 2005
Edgar Mitchell was the Lunar Command pilot of Apollo 14.
"Secrets of The Space Age" is an important addition to U.S. history and to the record of U.S. efforts in space. Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D. Capt USN (Ret.) Apollo Astronaut
Col. Winterstein is a courageous patriot and pioneer of America's space program from its birth with the testing of the captured German V-2 rockets to the landings on the moon. He has a great, but sometimes dark, story to tell about America's advance into space and about what became of the men who took us there. Patrick J Buchanan
Winterstein's book is a must read historical milestone. It begins with the advent of the space age of America. He was custodian of the German rocket team led by Dr. Wernher von Braun, who were invited to come to this country by President Truman immediately after WWII in 1945. He convinced von Braun to keep his team intact. This led to America's space victory in 1969, when von Braun and his team launched humankind into the space age by placing U.S. astronauts on the moon. Thus von Braun's dreams came true for opening up the new frontier for the peaceful use of all humankind. The final days of America's greatest space hero are also revealed in most interesting detail. Dr. Carol Rosin, President, Institute for Cooperation in Space
Dear Bill: I found your book interesting and was impressed by the facts concerning the history of the von Braun Team who contributed to our missile activities. A major goal was established in the early 1960's by President Kennedy, who transferred the Army Ballistic Missile team, (led by von Braun), to Marshall Space Flight Center of NASA, except for Dr. Arthur Rudolph, who was kept by the Army to finish the design of the Pershing missile, then he joined the MSFC team at a key management and technical responsibility for our Space Program in the early 1960's. Joseph C. Moquin (Former CEO of Brown Engineering when Brown was a contractor supporting the Apollo Program)
Immigrants working together in harmony and peace have made America the great nation it is! Lt. Colonel William E. Winterstein Sr.'s story of Arthur Rudolph is one such story. Rudolph designed the Pershing missile and he was directly responsible for designing and building the huge Saturn launch vehicle, which put man on the moon. This great feat put America into the lead during the Cold War. However after Rudolph had dedicated his life to the US space effort, he was wrongly robbed of his honor and citizenship and exiled by the OSI, an agency within our government. This true and "unbelievable" story may be a forecast of things to come for US citizens? Read "SECRETS OF THE SPACE AGE" and be forewarned. Martin Hollmann, President of Scientists and Friends
Col. William E. Winterstein, the author, merits great commendation for his superb chronicle of the outstanding American rocketry and space travel legacy of Dr. Arthur Rudolph. As stated in the text, the OSI produced no evidence of wrongdoing by Dr. Rudolph pursuant to our request for evidence under the Freedom of Information Act. Robert Sellers Smith Lawyer involved with Arthur Rudolph's Appeal
Every American who cares about justice and historical truth owes a debt of gratitude to William Winterstein for this first-hand look at the US space program, which he reinforces with valuable research and illuminating insights. The author is a World War II hero and internationally known rocket specialist who rose to the rank of US Army Lt. Colonel. He supervised security involving the 118 German rocket scientists, headed by Dr. Wernher von Braun, who came to the US after the war to help build America's guided missile program. From 1945 through the 1960s, Winterstein worked closely with von Braun and his team. In perhaps the book's most important section, Winterstein takes a close and courageous look at the US government's persecution of Arthur Rudolph. Few men contributed more to mankind's first landing on the moon than Dr. Rudolph, a German-born scientist who capped a brilliant career as production manager of the giant Saturn V rocket that in 1969 carried three American astronauts to the lunar surface. Praised as one of this country's greatest scientists, he was awarded numerous high honors, including NASA's Distinguished Service Medal. In 1982, more than a decade after his retirement, the "Office of Special Investigations" -- a US government agency set up under Jewish-Zionist pressure to serve narrow, un-American interests -- began a campaign to brand Rudolph a Nazi war criminal for his role in Germany's wartime V2 rocket program. Rudolph was stripped of his US citizenship, and forced to return to Germany. A German government investigation found no grounds for bringing charges against the elderly man, who died in early 1996. Winterstein untangles the complexities of this politically-loaded case, marshals facts that exonerate Rudolph, and delivers a stern but persuasive indictment of US government injustice. Mark Weber Director Institute for Historical Review
1) In 1993 the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeal held that OSI attorneys (in the Demjanjuk case) had acted with reckless disregard for their duty to the court and that they had committed "fraud on the court". Yet no one was fired and the OSI is still in operation. Years of observing its activities have convinced me that their approach is fundamentally flawed and incompatible with international human rights standards. In my opinion the OSI is un-American, undemocratic, unnecessary and a waste of taxpayers money. 2) The German rocket team served the people of America with loyalty and distinction. The American people and all humanity owe them respect and gratitude for their significant contribution to the space program. The uses of science are in the hands of good and bad politicians. Science and technology are apolitical. Alfred de Zayas an historian who authored numerous books including Nemesis at Potsdam. (Göttingen)
American educated lawyer (Harvard) and former Secretary of the United Nations Human Rights Committee and currently professor of international law. He is President of the United Nations Society of Writers & Secretary-General of the PEN Club in Geneva, Switzerland.
The author, who worked closely with members of the Wernher von Braun Rocket Team for many years, is highly qualified to present the historical events in the USA. Like many high ranking army officers, who had a direct knowledge of the Team's work during WWII he disagrees with the discrimination and railroad attempts of the Office of Special Investigations that started in 1982. Supported by extensive documentation and logical conclusions he hopes that the injustice will be corrected. Dr. Walter Haeussermann
The author studied a huge amount of "Rudolph case" documents. He discussed this topic over many years with Rocket Team members and other interested persons. Based on his military and juristic background he concluded that the United States Justice Department has done to its citizen Arthur Rudolph a grave injustice by lying and distorting facts, which led to his expulsion from this country. The book updates the public on the shameful mistreatment that this outstanding scientist received from the country, which he had chosen, as his post-war home and for which he had contributed major advances in technology and management. These unlawful "Justice" Department actions have disgusted thousands of his former coworkers in Government and Industry and they want these illegal actions revoked and the distorted space history corrected. Konrad Dannenberg
Confirmation of Dr. von Braun's remark about Bill Winterstein
Ernst Stuhlinger September 13, 2002. Colonel William E. Winterstein Dear Bill, Thank you for your letters of September 9 and 10. - I would like to make three comments: (1) my remark to Constance of May 2000 In Huntsville should be expanded some¬what, as indicated in my letter to Constance (enclosed).
(2) there were 5 members of the von Braun team who left the team (for greener pastures: Magnus von Braun, joining the Chrysler Corporation; Martin Schilling, joining the Raytheon Corporation, Theodor Buchhold, joining General Electric; Adolf Thiel, joining Thompson-Ramo-Wooldridge; and Hugo Woerdemann, starting his own company. 3). In the summer of 1969, after the three astronauts of Apollo 11 (Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Mike Collins) had returned safely to Earth, I remarked to von Braun that it was really fortunate that he decided in Fort Bliss during the late 1940s not to accept one of the lucrative offers from industry, but to stay with his team and the American Government, and to wait patiently for better times. "Yes', he said. ` The credit belongs to Bill Winterstein. He persuaded me, and I believed him!" Bill, I hope this will be useful to you. Best of luck for your project! Sincerest wishes Dr. Ernst Stuhlinger
