The truth about the UFO crash at RoswellUser Review - Book Verdict
Did a UFO crash in 1947 near Roswell, New Mexico? Did the U.S. Army Air Force recover the craft and its dead or dying crew? Was there a subsequent cover-up? Randle and Schmitt examine and compare the available evidence in this expanded version of their UFO Crash at Roswell (Avon, 1991). Randle, an Air Force reservist, and Schmitt, director of special investigations, Center for UFO Studies, present the most thorough and objective account currently available. The authors have had to rely on a lot of secondhand information but generally avoid speculation. They interviewed hundreds of people-including military personnel, civilians, and pilots-and examined government documents obtained via the Freedom of Information Act. Most disturbing are the statements of witnesses who claim they were threatened with bodily harm if they ever talked about what they saw. Possible alternative explanations are examined (Japanese balloon bombs, V-2 rockets, experimental aircraft) and discarded as implausible. Essential for public libraries, but academic libraries should also consider.-Gary D. Barber, SUNY at Fredonia Lib.
Review: The Truth About the UFO Crash at RoswellUser Review - Goodreads
Ignoring the fact that this was a weather balloon and all of the major witnesses to the so-called "event" interviewed in this book have since proven to be unreliable, this is a fun read.
