As this stunning expose makes clear there was in fact no UFO crash with dead aliens at Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. Nor was there a fallen balloon, as the government's recent cover-up would have us believe. In BODY SNATCHERS IN THE DESERT, Nick Redfern reveals what really happened on that fateful day over fifty years ago - and it's a story more bizzare than anyone could imagine. Redfern takes readers on an amazing journey from the American Southwest to secret installations in Japan, from the Los Alamos laboratories to the Pentagon itself, all to piece together an astonishing story; in the post-war years scientists endeavoured to build a nuclear powered aircraft and the effects of its radioactive cargo by flying it - with human passengers. Its crash in 1947 led to the mishaps and cover-ups hat gave birth to the Roswell legend. As the author builds his case, he offers no shortage of revelations, including diabolical experiments undertaken on deformed humans by both Japanese and American scientists during the 1940s; documents relating to experimental test flights in New Mexico; and the ambitious disinformation campaigns designed to hide the sinister truth.
