"While still on active duty in the U.S. Army during the 1980s, Colonel John B. Alexander, Ph.D. created an interagency group to explore the controversial topic of UFOs. Participants came from the Army, Navy, Air Force, CIA, NSA, DIA, and the aerospace industry. All members held Top Secret clearance. And what they discovered was not at all what was expected. UFOs covers the numerous cases they saw, and answers questions like: ʺWhat was really in Hanger 18? ʺDid a UFO really land at Holloman Air Force Base? ʺWhat happened at Roswell? ʺWhat is Majestic 12? ʺWhat is the Aviary? ʺWhat does the government know about UFOs? ʺWhat has happened with disclosure in other countries? ʺHas the US reverse engineered a UFO? ʺWhy don't presidents get access to UFO info? UFOs is at once a complete account of Alexander's findings, and a call to action. There are no conspiracy theories here--only hard facts--but they are merely the beginning. Serious research is needed in order to understand and anticipate the workings of UFOs, and John Alexander is leading the charge"--Provided by publisher.

Mind-blowing look at the worldwide history of UFOs, the actions of various governments with regard to their knowledge, and a fascinating and incredibly informative look at the US government as a whole, from a man who spent his life on the inside.

The book is a tiring monotonous eulogy to the author's own military career. Skip it. Waste of time.

Good book, but it's clearly disinfo.

UFO's exist, but the US is not involved.If you belive otherwise your a nut. That's the theme...
