The world has waited a long time for the inside scoop on Roswell. Truth is an excellent curative for false proclamations. The Roswell crashed saucer retrieval is one of the most important UFO cases ever, anywhere. We need more information from those directly involved, and this book provides a good deal of important new material. --Stanton T. Friedman --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

As an aside, there will continue to be questions regarding UFO's and ancient locales around the planet because in the '70's when Erich von Däniken came out with the book and movie "Chariots of the Gods" (and several other publications), brought this information to the masses. Those same questions exist today. Mainstream scholars ignore alien theorists, but there's more to this and just like the history about the United States, has not changed (Christopher Columbus discovered America, HA HA!).
brought it home that night before bringing it to the base, he showed the stuff to his wife and son. The word went out that the military had discovered a crashed UFO, later they said that it was a weather balloon, and made Jesse Marcel Sr pose with the wreckage of a weather balloon. and not to talk about what he really found! before he died he spoke about what he really found, and that the military had covered up what had really happened. the stuff made quite an impression on Jesse Marcel Jr. so much so he remembers it
well and wrote the book to tell his father's true story. very good read
You know, the only kinds of evidence allowed in a court of law are eye-witness testimony, expert testimony, and physical evidence, and Jesse Marcel Jr. provides us with two of the three--eye-witness and expert testimony. Not only did he see and handle some of the Roswell material, but he is a career military man and a medical doctor. So he has very impressive credentials.
Alas, if we could only come up with some of the physical evidence!
He has three sentences that I particularly like: The first is on p. 38, "While [at the Army's radar school at Langley, Virginia], he [Jesse Marcel Sr.] studied all varieties of Rawin radar targets, including the ML-307 reflectors used on the Mogul device later alleged to be the source of the material found at the Roswell site." In other words, the senior Marcel would have been completely familiar with the Mogul wreckage--if the Roswell material had been from a Mogul array.
The next passage I particularly liked was on p. 162, "I think that for whatever reasons, the most vocal skeptics have a need to ridicule people who believe in the reality of the exterrestrial visitations." Sad but true.
And the final passage is the last sentence in the book, on p. 169: "It is my deepest wish that their eyes [of our children and grandchildren] will remain open so that they may experience a universe filled with wonders we can scarcely imagine." Amen.
Well done, Dr. Marcel!
