Format: Paperback
The content of this 380-page book is most unusual, and split into two sections. They document two separate long-running cases of reported interaction between human-looking (but not actually human) visitors with humanity. This history took place in Europe between 1950 and 1980, so that the Americas are excluded completely from the action makes it more interesting. Broadly speaking, you might categorise the book as a `contactee story'.

In the introduction, the author Stefano Breccia writes:

"I must state for the record that I use the term `aliens' simply for convenience... I do not pretend to maintain that such entities originate from remote stellar systems...but that questioning the true origin of these entities is a futile exercise: be they from Mars, from Wolf 424, whether they spring from `the little people', or other dimensions...for us nothing changes...events that may be unknown to many concerning a few cases of mass contact...in which hundreds of people are abruptly confronted by an external reality, nearly all at the same time." (p18)

The first part of the book documents the so-called `UMMO' affair. Some readers may already be familiar with this episode, which is widely seen by researchers as some kind of enormous, complex and elaborate hoax. The human-looking visitors (but with minor physiological and major psychological differences) allegedly originated from an earth-like planet orbiting the star Wolf 424. They had an advanced, communal-based but hierarchical society and were reportedly present in small groups on Earth for many decades. The focus of the story was Spain, but many other locations were involved including France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and even Russia.

One or two chapters were interesting but for the most part it was filled with technical data which I could not verify or would even care to explore. The translation into English needed to be proofed better but for the most part was understandable. Sorry, but this was not an enjoyable read.

I have nearly finished reading this book and I really don't know what to make of it.
Its a direct translation from Italian
I have read a lot of books on alien contact with our Planet.
This is so weird!!!!!!!!!!.
There is no proof of what this man is writing more is the pity.
On the other hand it is fascinating story if true.
The mans writing style is not like we expect in most books on this subject.
However its very Human,chatty,warm.
But there is a weirdness here that I can't compare with any other book on this subject I have ever read.
The only way that would set my mind at rest on this book would be to meet him personally..or to see a good interview with him on you tube.
I remain open on this.
David.

This is a Must for serious UFO researchers.
The structure of the book is rather compartmented, since it covers many independent topics, and cases.
A great piece of information!

I think there is a truth lying at the heart of these claims. Though, some of what is reported may be discolored by people's beliefs, including those who were contacted. I happen to believe the space people are coming from the various planets in our system, living on planes of matter called the etheric.

I would recommend reading Gerard Aartsen's, "George Adamski: A Herald for the Space Brothers" and Benjamin Creme's "The Gathering of the Forces of Light". The latter worked closely with the space people and says he knew how to pilot a space craft before he knew how to drive a car!

I found the book to be a rambling set of stories that seem most consistent with the retelling of a hoax. Yes, there is a language barrier there, but even accounting for that it is a tough sell. I don't understand reviews stating this is a "must have" for serious researchers. There may be bits of information within that are hard to find elsewhere, but as far as considering this a book for researchers - it's far from it. There are basic factual errors in most of the pseudo-scientific discussions within. It may be worth $3.00 as a Kindle read, but I would have been very disappointed to have received this as an $18.00 book. It's a mess.

... go to Youtube and search under "The Friendship Case - Alien UFO Documentary". There you will find a recent British documentary on this case with many of the participants interviewed, alleged audio tapes of the W56 speaking, 16mm filmed footage of their UFO in flight along with many still photographs. If it's true, it's fascinating for obvious reasons. I'm not sure it's any less fascinating if it's not true for human psychological reasons. Up to you to decide.

It's a somewhat confusing read because the translation is not great, but it is certainly interesting and important. It's unfortunate that such a revelation would not get a better presentation however.
