Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

One of the more credible books arguing the existence of UFOs, this account tells of the alleged crash of a "flying saucer" near Corona, N.M., on July 3, 1947. Nuclear physicist Friedman and Berliner, founder of the Fund for UFO Research, note that of the many people who collected the debris, not a single one failed to turn every last scrap over to the Army. They assert that in the wreckage were small, "humanoid" beings. The authors' arguments gain credibility as they report the paranoid reaction of the military, which, they claim, cajoled and threatened witnesses into silence, supposedly to protect the earth from space invaders. Most arresting of all is the testimony of those who handled the debris, who had no opportunity to compare notes, yet have described the materials--mostly consisting of a flexible metal-like substance, in some cases marked by characters resembling hieroglyphics--in almost identical language.

From Library Journal

Oldtime UFO lecturer Friedman and aviation author Berliner have written the third book in a dozen years about a U.S. weather balloon that fell to earth in New Mexico in July 1947. Charles Berlitz and William L. Moore's The Roswell Incident ( LJ 9/15/80) turns the balloon into a crashed spaceship with four alien beings aboard. Kevin Randle and Don R. Shmitt's UFO Crash at Roswell (Avon, 1991) increases the number to at least six but adds little else to the myth. The present book, a clone of the other two, moves the crash to Corona, a small town 90 miles northwest of Roswell and adds a chapter on "MJ-12," an alleged super-duper top-secret government investigatory and cover-up operation, formed in 1952 and continuing today. The book is filled with "could be's" which become "probably's" that turn into "must have been's." There are plenty of interviews with children, nephews, neighbors, and others who were among the original "witnesses" of the debris (most of whom are dead), but nothing very believable is offered. Perhaps Friedman and Berliner think that if you repeat a fairy tale often enough, it becomes true. Skip this.

Mr. Friedman is not simply among the best in the field of Flying Saucer studies, because is probably the best that we will see for many years. Stan is a grinder and works harder than anyone else at studying and investigating this subject rather than pretending to knowledge or sitting on the sidelines and commenting.

If anyone can surpass his work on this book, I for one would like to see it.

To the guy who thought it was "unconvincing", I wonder if he actually read the same book I just did. In fact, the first 2 pages of the Introduction presented enough evidence for anyone with a brain. But I guess the authors had to write for all the stupid ones as well. Just R-E-A-D the d*mn Army communication shown in the first 2 pages. It should be a no-brainer to understand what it said. But sadly, Einstein was right about human stupidity being infinite.

This topic is overdone. Not really any convincing information with credible evidence to back it up.
