Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"This book is the closest to the truth about the `Roswell Incident' you will ever stumble upon, until that ever-mythical and distant `Day of Disclosure' dawns. What you have been seeking is the true story, the facts, the reality that the government withholds from you. This book is just in time for the 60th anniversary of the `Roswell Incident.' A revolution of thinking about UFO's is about to overtake us all. And so I urge you, by all means... read on!"
--Paul Davids, Executive Producer of Roswell, the Showtime Original Movie

"Witness to Roswell is a well researched, well documented, and well written account of a very important issue."
--Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Capt. USN [Ret.], Apollo Astronaut, Founder of IONS

"There is no one on this planet who knows more about the Roswell Incident than these two guys."
--Larry Landsman, Director of Special Projects for the SCI FI Channel and Creative Executive of The Roswell Crash

"Tom Carey and Donald Schmitt have devoted decades to unraveling Roswell--battling the multitude of phony `witnesses,' the desperate attempts by the government to cover the trail, and the silliness of the knee-jerk skeptics.
Presenting the facts in clear language, the Carey-Schmitt team shares astonishing discoveries about the epochal events of July 1947, and why Roswell really is the Holy Grail of Ufology."
--Capt. R.J. Durant, retired airline pilot, ufologist and respected Roswell Incident researcher

"The Roswell case is the most important UFO case of all time because it is from here that all decisions were made. It was the first of the cover-ups, the first attempt at mis-direction, and one of the most important events in human history. It is where creatures from another world were first seen by creatures from Earth. That we still argue about the reality of this case today is simply unbelievable."
--Kevin D. Randle, Ph.D., co-author: UFO Crash At Roswell and The Truth About The UFO Crash At Roswell

"No two men have done more to drag the truth about Roswell out of the shadows and to expose the outrageous cover-up which has been droning on for 60 years now than Tom Carey and Don Schmitt. If the cover-up is ever going to have a stake driven through it and the Roswell case resolved once and for all, it will most likely be Tom and Don who will do it. Their prolific contributions to Ufology constitute not only a bedrock of truth we can all be proud of but demonstrate what dedication and sacrifice above and beyond the call of duty can produce. Their new book is another milestone in the deconstruction of the Roswell cover-up."
--Jeff Rense, nationally-syndicated talk show host

Relying 100% on eyewitness and secondary witness testimony this book weaves together a picture of what the authors believed happened at Roswell back in 47'. If you don't believe the ET craft / alien body hypothesis then the first question that you have to answer about half way through the book is simply this, "Why in the world would these people - quite a number on their deathbeds - make this stuff up?" Fame and fortune? I don't see fortunes being raked in by these supposed witnesses and if fame is having your name written up in book that just might get you weird looks at the church bingo game....well, then I guess it's worth it. Unless of course, the answer is all these people have somehow collaborated together for this story or borrowed from each other's accounts. In other words, they are all bold-faced liars. The fact that 600+ people would randomly do such a thing I believe is a bigger focus of concern than if an actual alien craft did crash near Corona. All the supposed fabrications just don't make sense. And if it does make sense where else in history do we have an example of such a lie that has the same positive benefits for those that perpetrate it? I couldn't think of any.

The authors also mention a number of people who refuse to talk at all about their involvement with Roswell. If these tight-lipped folks are represented accurately by the authors - then one gets the distinct impression that they aren't talking because they are afraid of being associated with the wing nuts who believe in the ET hypothesis - it is because they fear reprisal by the Powers That Be or they feel a duty to keep the secret they were told to shut up about half a century ago. Those that do talk seem to verify this is the reason the others aren't talking.

Recently, two mile wide UFOs were sighted over the English Channel by a reputable, seasoned pilot, his copilot and several of their passengers. News of this potentially earth-shaking event was relegated to mili-second sound bytes on the majority of American news networks: and usually accompanied with a snide, derisive, condescending tone as if the pilot and passengers were Loony Tunes. Yet the same news stations endlessly - and I mean ENDLESSLY! - watch and comment upon the misadventures of a non-entity named Paris Hilton as if her every move were potentially life-altering and of vital importance to America's need to know! This is the sad state of affairs in America: focus on the idiotic while the truly important rides the back of the bus, if it rides at all. What is more important? Paris' jailhouse converson - or a mile wide UFOs spotted over the English Channel...or the Phoenix Lights...or, yes, Roswell? To everyone who has their head buried (by choice or force)in the sand of popular, pointless bilge...please read this book! To anyone with an interest in Truth - read this book. It is gripping, enthralling and if even 1/100th of it is true - then the political and philosophical ramifications of it to we Americans (and all citizens of the World!) are immense beyond all comprehension. Yes....it is easy to follow the mindlessly flashy exploits of celebrity screw-ups. It numbs the collective brain of the country - eases it into acceptance of the trivial. But America needs wake-up calls and this book is one of them!!! Read this book and realize that our government is a magic act and that behind its smokescreens there are serious, cosmic, incredible goings-on that we - the paying audience - never really are privy to.Read more ›

This is perhaps the most comprehensive, well informed and intelligent work that I have read on the Roswell incident to date. This book is essential for anyone who is interested in delving into one of the biggest mysteries of the modern era: The government's cover-up of an alien aircraft crash landing in 1947.
If you are interested in uncovering the truth behind the flimsy and ridiculous stories that the U.S. Air Force has been selling to the public for the past 60 years, then this book is the perfect place to start.
Likewise, if you are not necessarily interested in the UFO phenomenon, then this book still provides an excellent story of government deceit, mystery and intrigue, be careful though, you may find yourself opening a Pandora's box to a realm of truth that may scare you. Whether you choose to take the red pill or the blue pill, this book is an excellent buy.

Thanks in no small part to the tenacious pioneering work of Stanton Friedman in the 1970s and 80s the now famous July 1947 Roswell incident is known throughout the world as the definitive crashed UFO recovery, spirited away in secret by the US military and successfully covered up for 60 years.

Plenty of books about the Roswell crash have been published and one might think that after 60 years there would be little more to add. But it turns out there is a lot more, and real meaty stuff too. Tom Carey and Don Schmitt researched the Roswell incident separately and together for years prior to the final publication of "Witness to Roswell" and both have written previous books and articles on the case. For this book they obviously did new primary research tracking down eyewitnesses and participants and recording testimony: some 600 people in total. The result is probably the definitive evidential summing-up of the Roswell incident and, due to the passage of time and the fact that witnesses grow old and don't live forever, is unlikely to be bettered. The verdict: what came down in the desert on Brazel's ranch in early July 1947 was of non-terrestrial origin, the wreckage was recovered by the US military, the craft and ET bodies were shipped by air to Wright-Patterson USAAF base on a B-29 (all documented), and the subsequent cover-up perpetrated by the government in Washington DC and its agencies was of unprecedented ruthlessness in threatening witnesses' lives and the lives of their families should any of them ever talk about the incident.

Carey and Schmitt must be commended for their thoroughness in tracking down all these witnesses and piecing together the complex story.
