Heard Mr. Maloney intervierwed on "Coast to Coast" a while back, finally got around to buying his book. While I think Mr. Maloney did a credible job of chronicling a good number of UFO cases related to war-time situations, I think the average reader of UFO books will be quite familiar with the events described. Additionally the majority of the incidents covered in the book are done only at a very top level, in an almost conversational style with only limited documentation and detail. If you are looking for in-depth analysis of any of the sightings covered in the book, "UFOs in Wartime" in not your answer. Not saying this is a bad book, far from it in fact, just pointing out serious students of ufology may find it a bit basic. For what it is, it's good, especially for the price.

I do have one major complaint. Both the front and back covers of the book promise it "Includes Incredible Photographs of UFO Sightings". This is absolutely not the case. Of the eight pages of photos, there isn't a single photo of a UFO, unless you count a poor quality reproduction of a page from the "LA Times" showing the oft copied photo of an "object" illuminated by search lights buring the "Battle of Los Angeles." The rest of the "incredible" photos are those of aircraft and ships involved in some of the incidents the author describes, as well as five primitive artist's conceptions of various sightings covered in the text.

There are no footnotes, there are no endnotes. There is a small list of booka and websites, which makes it clear what this book is- a retelling, a recompillation, of stories told before. There is no new research, no referral to archives or personal interviews by the author. And the "incredible photographs of UFO sightings" boasted of on the covers (back and front) are one reproduction of an LA Times newspaper page, 5 artist's renderings, and 4 standard photos supplied by the Air Force and Navy.
On the plus side the book is well written and does not suffer from an excess of exclaimation points. It is a mildly interresting/entertaining way to pass some time if your health or the weather prevent you from anything more active at the moment.
I wonder if he got as bored writing it as I did reading it- by the time I got to p.216, unnamed people seeing lights just lost me. If I were to guess, I'd say a publisher decided it was time for another UFO book, contacted someone and said organize some of this stuff in a new way so we can give it a new title.

Without specific references, you can't go back to the source of these reports to check whose silly meter wasn't working. On p.222 "...a speed estimated to be 50,000 mph." I hope is a typographical error- how could anyone without special instruments estimate that sort of speed. You couldn't even see it.
One more oddity I noted, p.243 Batwoman; how can something be black and "glowing brightly"? I'm willing to give it a chance, but can't picture how that would look.

If you are interested in the subject of unidentified flying objects you definitely will want to read this book.
I rarely suggest books concerning the UFO topic as I cannot find ones I feel will benefit the subject on a level needed to break through the wall of denial and delusion that has built around this subject.
It seems we long ago lost our way with subjects considered unknown riding a abstract road mixed of fact and fiction . It seems impossible to find material that gets to the point and is filled with data we need to digest and decide on the issue of flying unknowns.
UFOs in Wartime- written by Mack Maloney is one of the best books in my mind written concerning the Unidentified Flying Object subject out there.
Mack Maloney does not waste our time with fluff or filler. He gets right to the getting leaving the readers head spinning with one report, encounter or sighting after the other . This book is filled from first page to last with information collected from first rate sources and witnesses . Mack left no stone unturned in his research of UFO's during our worlds history of War.

Not only is the book fascinating in its first rate accounts it explains reports of what took place in our skies during our war conflicts going back to AD 312.

How many times have we had to listen to naysayers whine how they deny what they hear or read concerning the UFO issue due to the lack of credible witnesses? How many times have we had to listen to the complaints of those who feel only crazy people or money grabbers are those pushing the UFO agenda? Mack Maloney has given us all the ammunition to give those clinging to that line of reasoning something to think about.

I really loved the first part of the book covering the scareships, ghost planes and the strange missiles. There were indeed so many sightings of these things as they can not be written off as mass hysteria. Were these the start of the black OPS projects for advanced technology of even these primitive things or something else? If it were not that this was so long ago more work could be done in this areana. While it is true that the later part of this book is broadly known data it is the earlier period material that I found absoulutly fascinating! I also really loved the even earlier stuff on George Washington and even the Romans and how strange flying craft may have influenced the creation of the United States and early Christianity. Well worth a read!
