Historical Recollection of Phenomenal Operations of the United States Missile and Space Programs
Don Peeler tells of the covert, momentous roles that he and his colleagues played in the development of several, then top secret programs.
“Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, as millions flocked to their hum-drum offices, hundreds of men and women of the General Motors Division conducted their top-secret research. But nobody outside really knew, and secrecy was a way of life with their work shrouded by classification designations. The classifications have now expired, and I am coming out of the woodwork to share my team’s collective story,”
The United States of America’s first ever spy satellite and stealth fighter. The country’s efforts to recover a crashed Russian submarine - these are some of the vital stories that have been kept secret for decades.
Don Peeler, a pioneer of the US Missiles and Space Program within the General Motors Division, reveals the early days of his participation and development of several secret programs. His book, Nothing Was Ever Normal, is a biographical and historical non-fiction that explores his exciting, out-of-this world career in aerospace and engineering operations that delineates the brilliance, commitment, and hard work of the once top-secret, but now revealed, undertakings of the more-than-common roles of a highly innovative team of engineers.
The book reveals riveting every day tales of Peeler and his colleague’s unprecedented efforts that helped shape those early programs. Filled with new knowledge, humor, and fascinating but almost unbelievable experiences, one will swim in awe and admiration as a thunder of experiences come in great detail and illustration regarding the workings, interactions, projects, and systems of these stellar programs.

The classifications have now expired, and I am coming out of the woodwork to share my team’s collective story,” states the author.
