Sauder's book is the best and, as far as I know, only book on the rather important subject of high-tech, super-expensive bases, with their connecting tunnel systems. Sauder's specialty is researching and obtaining U.S. Government documents. What he found out under the subject of underground bases and tunnels is shocking! Packed with government diagrams and patents, this is a one-of-a-kind book!

I'm guessing most people who don't like this book were expecting something different. This book has lots of good info, all of it is very well researched and he backs up all of his sources. Just don't expect extreme Dulce wars type material...

The material in this book corroborates some of the stories I've heard in various UFO books about underground noises, lights, and craft coming out of the ground. The author sticks mostly to the facts, and he usually has pictures and documents to back up what he's saying. Overall it doesn't necessarily mean that anything actually exists, however, they COULD exist. He leaves it up to the reader to decide.

Sauder collects basically all the publically available info re: Underground bases and tunnels. It's outdated, but his second tome likely covers more up to date info. The research itself likely took a lot of time, and it is a very quick read. His writing style is simple and understandable, and he only presents the facts and asks very pertinent questions to which he states he does not know the answers.

There are also tons of pictures, schematics and patents that he has found which are totally worth the price of the book. The info on tunneling technology is also highly interesting as is his listing of 'official' underground installations.

The fault i found with the piece is towards the end he kind of tampers off and it doesn't really 'end' with anything solid. He goes into nuclear testing and EPA programs to monitors human/animal contamination - which is good info, just not really pertinent in a piece about underground installations. He also compares commercial technology and techniques to animal mutilations and alien abductions which is relatively inconclusive, thou the comparisons are interesting in an of themselves.

All in all, worth reading, and it won't take you long.

This is a very worthwhile topic, and it would be great to see informative books coming out on this topic. But Sauder's book, alas, is useless. The author is honest--he admits he has no personal knowledge of the bases and has received essentially zero useful information from insiders. (The only nuggets are that someone descended 17 levels in a White House elevator and still did not reach bottom, and that there is an underground base in California with 42 levels). Why write a book if you have nothing to say? All that Sauder did is file a bunch of FOIA requests and receive government documents of negligible utility. So he speculates on what might or might not be. We all can do that, and we don't need to fill up a book with our speculations.

By contrast, I would recommend Branton's book on the Dulce Wars. While that book only covers one underground base and is poorly edited, it does at least give a great deal of insider information, so the reader does learn something instead of just wasting his time looking for nonexistent information.

Sauder herein compiles a treasure-trove of items which strongly suggest that not only are governments and private corporations interested in underground bases and tunnels, but they have also been engaged in the creation of several of them and he has documents which seem to prove it. Obviously, data as secret as this and as explosive as this is closely guarded by the government and perhaps further FOIA requests will help us dig deeper into this mystery but there is nothing to suggest that this area of study should be ignored. I highly recommend anyone interested in secret government or black budget projects consider reading this book and the sequel 'Underwater Bases'.

This is probably one of those books that got lost in the conspiracy theory jungle of misinformation and speculation. But to be honest, the author, Richard Sauder, only reports what he actually could confirm, complete with photos and diagrams taken from government sources. The fact that this book has had little or no impact is not the fault of the author. I might object slightly to his rather dry writing, but I think he was trying to remain dispassionate in order to separate himself from the more radical elements of odd and unusual information - a formidable task. I don't think he achieved it. I know of no current investigation or exposure of these facilities or their purposes despite Richard Sauder making a compelling argument for their existence. But when you consider it was published in 1996, a decade and a half ago, it is obvious it has made no appreciable impact. Who has heard of these bases except the fringe? And the fringe are marginalized too easily and their information discounted. Kudos to Sauder for making the effort and I recommend this read for anyone who is willing to look.

the author doesn't claim to know, but it seems he suspects the military of putting a great deal of top secret stuff there, which makes sense since it would be hidden and secure.

Roughly:
There might be secret genetic testing going on there
The air force might hide advanced planes underground
There is a large interconnected bunker system that might be used in times of war to house the entire United States goverment
We might have nuclear silos on the dark side of the moon
The navy has exotic submarines, sonar stations, and the like (in sequel to this book.)

Additionally he speculates many powerful families who control the few companies who have a broad overview of what are being constructed are members/associates of the Bush family. Additionally it is clear that whatever is going on is very secret. The author seems to be on the fence over whether it is just preparations for a possible nuclear war (like was very possible during the cold war) or if the facilities are being used for more exotic things. The truth is probably both.

Someone is doing a lot of things down under the ground. This book tries to find out who, and why. I found it a good read. It has peeked my interest in the subject.

I lot of information about what goes on under our feet.
I recommend to anyone interested in what the government does in secret.
You will have to read and then decide if you believe it or not.
