Product Description

From Amazon

Certainly taking the opposite tack from Peebles' Watch the Skies, Randle is a believer and has no compunction about making that clear. While not afraid to point out the obvious hoaxes, he is not ready to concede that the U.S. government does not know more than it's letting on, nor that the Roswell craft was just a weather balloon. Randle gives an in-depth discussion only to the major crash events, but his arguments are seductive. A History of UFO Crashes certainly lives up to its title, and if you are looking for a thorough chronology of reported crashes, it's all here in one book.

Facts are what counts Feb. 3 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found this book well researched and stuffed with proven fact. The author hardly ever goes as far as speculating. I find comments such as that by reader JJMcGrath particularly stupid because they try to evade seious discussion by joking their way out of it. A book like this is a good opportunity to ask the question: If all the information, the testimonies by pilots and ex-airforce top ranks, the eyewitness reports from hundreds if not thousands of people, the tons of classified documents crafted by Army, Airforce and various government agencies, if all that is just wishful thinking by some UFO-lunatics, where is the book that relates proof that all the counts against the US government are totally untrue? I haven't found a single one yet, and I would really like the McGraths in this country to tell me.
One of the best of it's ilk. Jan. 18 2006
By D. Allen - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Clear and concise research by, in my humble opinion, one of the most clear-headed, fact based researchers on the topic of UFO's. As the title suggests, this book concentrates only on stories of CRASHED UFO's; no sightings, no abdution lore. The beef of the book concentrates on the five best cases of authentic crashes, then the book finishes with a chronology of alleged crashes and explinations (85% proven hoaxes, the rest are non-ufo related, insufficiant data, and a handfull of probable authentic cases. Probably one of the best source books for the serious researcher; loony unconditional believers probably won't like it, nor will hardened skeptics (debunkers by another name, who will grasp at anything to explain the authentic cases away).

There are only two cases presented in this book with which I have contention:

1) Aurora, Texas (1897). New information ,possibly since the publishing of this book, may lead this case to the point of authentication...there are two ways to find out for sure. A) although the heastone was stolen in the '70's, locate the grave of the "airship pilot" and have it exhumed (it's been in litigation for 10 years to do so). B) Open Proctor's well (where debries was allegedly thrown). If any remains,it would go a long way to proving either authentication or hoax.

2) Roswell. I still consider this the Trojen Horse (too much is made of this when there are better cases). Since the publication of this book, Glen Dennis' testimony has been proven, to the most part, to be fabrication. Would the Air Force fessed up that the wreckage was that of a rocket or experimental aircraft, this case would have for the most part dissapeared. The only things that keep Roswell on the "Unsolved" list is the testimony of the first hand witnesses of the metallic debris, and the length of rediculousness of the explinations that the Air Force continues to distribute.

Overall, one of the best books ever written about the topic of UFO crashes, and a must read for beginner and serious researcher alike.

UFO or not is the question this book raises. Feb. 8 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a book that ponders the question of alien visitation through reported crashes of unknown aerial vehicles. It has good research and the author does offer other explanations for these UFO crashes. All in all a good book to read and is somewhat objective.

Well Researched! June 20 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book very much and thought the writing was excellent as well as superb analysis of the UFO situation. I've been interested in this field for about two years and got started when I read Steiger's 'Project Blue Book,' 'Rainbow Conspiracy' and his latest exceptional book, "Alien Rapture." I recommend it very much.
