A couple of years before, the worst war in history, that killed tens of millions of people, had just ended. A couple of years before, Atomic Bombs, that could kill an entire city in the blink of an eye, came into existence. A couple of years before, V2 Rockets that could potentially boost those A Bombs into Outer space to come down anywhere on earth desired, came into existence. And now, just a couple of years after those unbelievable, but true, horrors emerged, this new worry exploded into existence! Kenneth Arnold's sighting was the "Dam Buster" that shoved the subject into the worlds face. This sighting, not Roswell, was the beginning of the "Flying Saucer" phenomenon. Kenneth Arnold was not a village idiot or a town drunk. He was a respected businessman. He flew his own plane for business purposes, and he had several thousand hours of flight time. He was also a part time Deputy Sheriff. He was a solid citizen who shouldn't have been making up stories like this. There have been thousands of sighting like this in the 70 years since this groundbreaking sighting. if you actually want to know more about this subject than what you read in the newspaper, you'll get this book to start your education.
And he is doing so as one of the world’s most qualified UFO researchers in the scientific field. He is a physicist who has M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics at American University, Washington, DC. His scientific approach to UFO phenomena has done much to establish the subject in the scientific realm, rather than being simply viewed as “believers” vs. “non-believers.”
In this book, he goes to the very root of the UFO phenomena, which was established by the original excellent report by a highly credentialed pilot, Kenneth Arnold. Ever since this 1947 event, controversy has raged about whether the phenomenon is real. Maccabee robustly seats the reality of this event through scientific examination. He employs many analytic techniques such as Arnold’s very detailed and carefully calculated basic description of the event, its timing, flight dynamics, and the speed and size of the objects.
He adds many illustrations and interviews with Arnold and others associated with this event.
But as a bonus, this book is not only a technical masterpiece; it is very readable and highly entertaining. Once you begin reading, you can’t put it down. (Irena Scott)
