Format: Paperback
It's a shame the author will only sell this on his site as there is always the potential to get to a wider audience here on Amazon.
This is a painstakingly researched book. Since 1973, Robert Hasting's has interviewed over 80 ex-USAF personnel.
His father worked at Malmstrom AFB and they young Robert took one of his first jobs as a janitor in the bases Air Traffic control tower. One night, one the the staff, showed him five UFO returns on the radar from then on he became hooked.
What he builds up from his research is truly amazing picture. Three types of aerial craft have persistently showed themselves to be interested in US Nuclear Air Bases, Nuclear processing plants, missile test ranges and virtually every military asset connected with nuclear weapons.
The witness testimony is backed up with references to FBI and other released US government documents. Robert Hastings has been very carefully not to damage the reputations of current USAF employees and only interviewed retired personnel. His integrity and persistence have paid off with a dazzling amount of witness testimony.
The physicological tests that nuclear base personnel means that these witnesses are of the very highest caliber.
In my opinion this is another stake in the coffin of UFO secrecy.
I have no doubt this book will become one of the best known resources of reliable witness testimony in field.

In a 600 page book author Robert Hastings, son of a USAF special weapons Senior MSG, researches, documents, names sources and events dealing with the topic of UFO's and their fascination with this Nation's nuclear sites. He chronicles many as if present during the happening. He even documents some sightings outside the USA. Admittedly there is a large 'woo woo' factor when discussing UFO's and Hastings deals with this in a logical and straight forward manner. From the development of the Atomic Bomb to the famous Roswell crash, to events at Malstrom AFB, Ellsworth AFB, even the Pentagon, it's all there. Hastings concludes by asking that we (humanity) no longer ignore that what is so plainly obvious. Alien life forms from outer space or secret government project, the topic begs to be disclosed and explained to the citizens of the world. This book is written with the accuracy of a scientific or medical paper placed in a peer reviewed journal. This book belongs on the desk of every Senator, Representative and the President. Whether believer or skeptic this book deserves a place in your library.

This book is a "must have". It digs into the crucial aspect of the tight relations between UFOs and nuclear weapons. The chapters are well written, thoroughly researched and documented and cover the whole area of this relation. I particularly appreciated the chapter dealing with the relation between UFO outbreak and nuclear fall-out dispersion. Being myself a UFO researcher and author of 2 published books that document this very topic, I was impressed with the amount of sources Robert Hastings managed to gather (thanks to his personal interviews of key witnesses). A highly recommended book ! Fabrice Bonvin - Switzerland

After more than 30 years of painstaking research Robert Hastings has written a large (600-page), meticulously documented study of the interactions of UFOs with nuclear weapons installations. It makes for sobering reading.

The author's interest in this subject was first kindled in March 1967 when as a teenager from an Air Force family, he had an after-school cleaning job in the control tower at Malmstrom AFB in Montana where his father was stationed. One evening he was shown "unknown" targets on the radar screen (i.e. UFOs) above the nuclear missile base, and told that fighters had been scrambled to intercept. Later he was told that the intruders had outperformed the USAF jets and flown away.

When Hastings went on the US college circuit in 1981 to lecture about the government cover-up of the UFO phenomenon, he discovered many former military personnel were attending the talks. Some would approach him after the lecture, reveal details of their UFO encounters whilst in the military and agree to a confidential interview. He has also been contacted by former Air Force Missileers via their Association and, gradually, built up a reputation for thoroughness, professionalism and discretion which has led many former military witnesses to trust telling their stories on the record. Interestingly, the Inspector General's Office confirms not one "broken security" event relating to UFOs revealed by former service personnel has ever been prosecuted, so Hastings sticks with witnesses retired from the military (mainly from the Air Force) and avoids compromising current serving personnel for whom the consequences might be more serious.

The book documents more than 200 such interactions supported by hundreds of ex-military witnesses and FOIA-released documents.

This is one of the most well-researched and documented books about UFOs interacting with our nuclear weapons programs I have ever read. It almost becomes tedious in places until you remember that it has to be: the extensive documentation is very necessary to bring some concrete cedibility to the entire subject of extraterrestrial visitation and interest in what homo sapiens is up to.
What I particularly like was the author's ability to speculate as to the whys and wherefores of ET's interest in us and our questionable propensity to build weapons capable of wiping ourselves (and a great many other species) off the face of this planet.
I found it a particulary cogent, trenchant & fascinating read. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the UFO phenomena.
