Introduction to the Aerodynamics of Flight
by Theodore A. Talay
Publisher: NASA History Division 1975
Number of pages: 198
This volume is a result of several semesters of the author's teaching of an introductory course in aerodynamics to apprentices and technicians at the NASA Langley Research Center. The problem faced was to provide more than a layman's treatment of the subject but not the detail as taught in many individual courses on the college level. The result is a highly qualitative, illustrated set of notes which, through the teaching process, was modified to fulfill the objectives better.

This is the story less of heroes than of a generation of engineers who made Apollo possible. It is thus the story of the men and women who stood where the shadow was deepest. Their story is told largely in their own words.
