For over fifty years an incident near Roswell, New Mexico, has sparked the imaginations of UFO enthusiasts. Did the military recover a crashed "flying saucer" there, along with several extraterrestrial bodies? Has the government gone to great lengths to hide the evidence? Over time these speculations have reached the status of unquestionable truths in the minds of many ufologists.

In this definitive study of the Roswell incident, longtime UFO researcher Karl T. Pflock-who is convinced that some UFO reports are real alien sightings-concludes, after an exhaustive investigation, that no alien craft or bodies were ever found at Roswell. Pflock admits at the outset that he too once strongly believed there might be something to the Roswell alien stories, and he describes how he then came to discover the whole truth. Using formerly classified records he proves that the U.S. government has absolutely no physical evidence of aliens, shows how critical weather data completely refute key claims of Roswell believers, and explains why the case now rises and falls on the testimony of just one witness, who cleverly manipulated leading investigators and continues to do so today.

Pflock's intensive research and access to once-classified documents-including facsimilies of important formerly classified documents, 28 witness affidavits, and the entire Pratt-Marcel interview transcript-make this book must reading even for UFO buffs-believers and skeptics alike- who feel they know everything about Roswell.

Amazing feat of scholarship and investigative work. Absolutely demolishes the most famous UFO case that never happened. Written by a former "true-believer", does not succumb to dogmatic debunking ... Read full review

I am JC Smith's granddaughter. My grandfather has unequivocally stated that although he was contacted by phone for an interview, he declined to participate. Any quotes attributed to him are fully manufactured.
