From the Inside Flap
Suddenly the U.S.S. Eldridge, a fully manned destroyer escort, vanished into a green fog, within seconds appeared in Norfolk, Virginia, and then reappeared in Philadelphia!
For over thirty-six years officials have denied this, have denied any experimentation to render matter invisible -- have denied the reality of THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT.
If so, why --
* were all the men aboard ship who survived discharged as mentally unfit?
* did a scientific researcher on the project meet a mysterious death?
* were identities hidden, documents lost, and amazing connections between UFO sightings and events in the Bermuda Triangle denied?
THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT -- the first full-length documented report on a chilling unsolved mystery that's been discussed for years. Now, official documents and first-hand stories have been revealed. Here is the truth in a report so shattering it is difficult to believe it's NOT fiction. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Some of these accounts may or may not be true. The problem with this however, is that the authors do not attempt to document their sources. This means they are either unable or unwilling to document these sources. All of which means many or all of these sources or accounts could either be true or false.
Basically, nobody will ever know, and the authors may have wanted it that way. Admittedly, the book IS interesting, as long as the reader takes in the material with a certain amount of cautious skepticism. But there doesn't seem to be anything here that is strongly substantiated. That doesn't prove it's NOT true, it only proves that it cannot be proven to BE true.
According to legend, the US Navy conducted invisibility experiments on one of their ships during WWII. Not simply invisible, the ship actually teleported from its berth in Philadelphia. However, the little-understood process played havoc with the crew - even after the experiment's end, some crewmen would "blink" in and out of existence, become frozen in time or catch fire. One man walked through a wall, never to be seen again. Of course, the Navy denies the whole thing....
While the legend places the story during the dark days of WWII, the legend itself began in the mid 1950's, with the publication of "The Case for the UFO" by Morris Jessup. (Aknowledging that Jessup is no scientist, Berlitz & Moore nevertheless refer to him as "Dr. Jessup".) Believing that propulsion of UFO's (and perhaps future human spacecraft) lay in solving Einstein's "Unified Field Theory", Jessup encouraged readers to press for research in that area. Jessup's book caught the attention of Carl Allen (AKA Carlos Allende), who spent the war in the Merchant Marine. In a series of rambling letters Allen insisted that Einstein had solved UFT, and the solution was successfully used to cloak a USN warship in wartime experiments.Read more ›
Nevertheless, a higly-recommended book for those interested in what many believe really happened during World War II, at a now-abandoned navy yard on the Delaware River.
