Heroes of Space Series: Wernher von Braun, Yuri Gagarin, and Apollo Astronauts

Three for one day at Dreams of Space! Wanted to highlight a great non-fiction series: Heroes of Space.
The titles in the series are:
Wernher von Braun, Yuri Gagarin, John Glenn, and Apollo Astronauts.
Goodrum, J C. (1969). Wernher von Braun, space pioneer,. [Huntsville Ala.]: Strode Publishers.
Akens, D S. (1969). John Glenn, first American in orbit,. [Huntsville Ala.]: Strode Publishers.
Sharpe, M R. (1969). Yuri Gagarin first man in space,. [Huntsville Ala.]: Strode Publishers.
Richey, B J. (1970). Apollo astronauts first men to the moon,. Huntsville Ala.: Strode Publishers.
Written in response to the impending moon landing these are very interesting biographies published in Huntsville, AL.
They got some very knowledgeable people to write these and they encapsulate in 4 books the development of manned spaceflight and how man got to the moon.
BJ Richey was space correspondent for the Newhouse News service and worked for the Huntsville Times. John Goodrum was an Apollo engineer and a staff member on the von Brun team.
