Format: Paperback
I've read more than a few books and articles and watched several documentaries regarding the events that took place near Roswell in early July 1947. Don Berliner and Stanton Friedman lay out the case that an alien spacecraft crashed near Roswell in a way that I think even skeptics will find tough to dismiss. The book is very well researched and thorough in its findings and, while we'll most likely never have the "smoking gun" that proves beyond any doubt of such a crash, this book is about as close as we can get to the facts concerning that event.

Highly recommended.

I would say it's better than most UFO books because it's at least somewhat cohesive and tries to follow a somewhat ordered structure. However, there's no proof of anything. I would say it's not the author's fault because of the material he's dealing with. It's a catch-22 on his part. He cannot access any information because of the supposed "cover-up," but at the same time any other claims are circumspect because nothing backs it up.

Overall, I'd say it's the best report on Roswell and poses some interesting theories. The author does a good job with it and makes it easy to follow. Believe me, for a UFO book, that is something extraordinary. Most UFO books are a bunch of anecdotes and sighting reports in no particular order. I recommend it.

I very much enjoyed the book. It was well researched, although there were several contradictions the authors didn't address, such as the metal found at the crash site was thin and bendable, but also described as unbendable and undentable with a sledge hammer.
The worse part, though, is all the grammatical errors, misspellings and run-on sentences in the Kindle edition, along with hyphenated words just to get the sentence to fill the space...Very annoying!

I am overwhelmed by the prodigious investigation and scientific research involved to produce this major work, which must be the definitive work on the "Roswell" incidents. Before I read this book, in my ignorance I had believed the "weather balloon" theory! The reader is presented with multiple interviews from eyewitnesses or their relatives, and even some top-secret documents from the highest level of government.

This book provided me with some of the most informative, stimulating and enlightening reading that I've had in years. Congratulations to the authors for such brilliant research and such elegant, brilliant, gripping writing!

Stanton Friedman: One of the very few scientists ufologists who make sense.
He researches the topic.
He provides uncontested data.
He defied the arrogant scientists.
He studied the phenomena as an honest scientist.
He spent 30 years investigation Ufos.
He knows!
He knows!
His books are the very core of Ufology.
He is the ONE!

I like that Stanton Freidman is fair about his reporting. He states the facts and doesnt jump to the conclusion that all lights in the sky are from ET. Even though the evidence supports that we are not alone, we don't know all the facts. Our Government has had a lot of Black projects like the U2 and many more that could account for some of the unknowns. so until ET makes a landing at the White House I am watching the skys.

I've been aware of the "Roswell Incident" for years, but this is new information done by highly qualified researchers. It gives a whole new perspective on the UFO crash in 1947. With painstaking sleuthing, Stanton Freedman and Don Berliner have found new evidence and witnesses that indicate that there was more than one area where this UFO left debris or that in fact, the crash may have been a collision between two crafts. Very intriguing and after reading the testimony of so many witnesses you have to suspect that something more than a "weather baloon" came down that day. Well written, fast moving and hard to put down.

The author goes through a lot of information and direct & indirect witnesses to try to get to the truth on the Roswell UFO crash. Some of the information does not make a lot of sense. There are three of the most secretive bases in the U.S. in the area of the crash site, and yet the military installations' radar systems, couldn't see beyond 37 miles? What good would that do? And Major Marcel and Cpt. Cavitt spent the night in sleeping bags out in the desert to check out the crash site the next morning? You're kidding right? They couldn't just get up a few hours earlier and leave from their base? A little too "lay back" for military intelligence. Did they make a campfire and sing Cum Bah Yah? I'm not buying that story.

There is a lot of repetition and supposition with chapters like "Implications" which are all speculative "what ifs." Too much filler for my liking.

The best part of the book is the section on San Agustin. I had heard about a secondary UFO crash in Socorro but had not read anything about it until now. The book is worth reading just for that part alone which is worth 4 Stars.
