	You might want to check out the new book "Road to Space", which 
is a new history of the Soviet space program, as told by the 
participants.  Yes, the Soviets didn't get too many Germans, or even 
V-2s, but they made very good use of what they did get.  Sergei Korolev 
was their von Braun.

	BTW - it is not often recognized, but von Braun was a Major in 
the SS.  He wasn't the innocent German that they like to portray him as.
