The authors of this book, Stanton T Friedman and Don Berliner, are both scientific and logical; they also score highly credibility -wise. Friedman worked on the US. nuclear rocket programme and Berliner for the Air Force, they each had top secret clearance and handled materials cassified top secret and higher. For these reasons alone, what they say must be of significance.

If the Roswell mythos is fictional, then it is certainly byzantine and abstruse. The only thing that can be stated with certainty is that "something" crashed near Roswell (at Corona) during the first week of July 1947. Berliner, who actually penned the book, refers to the culture of secrecy in New Mexico, where many of the Air Force's most secret projects were developed, including, at Los Alamos, the H bomb. The success of the US. military in winning WW2 meant that in 1947 the nation was gung ho, both proud and secretive regarding it's military. Berliner refers to the region's inhabitants as "consciously patriotic", and this naturally impedes the flow of information regarding Roswell. William (Mac) Brazel on whose sheep farm the debris fell, was taken by what was then the Army Air Force, into custody after he patriotically brought some of the wreckage to the local sheriff. He was kept at Roswell airbase an entire week for interrogation; subsequently he went along with the weather balloon story.

My problem with the case is the nature of the debris that was found. It was described by William Brazel jr. as being "like foil" and "like balsa wood", surely an interplanetery craft cannot be built from such materials? On the other hand, what was it that required this extraordinary degree of secrecy and suppression by Army Air Force personnel?

5.0 out of 5 stars A book very well researched. 3 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Crash at Corona is a finely researched book about the UFO crash near Roswell, New Mexico in July of 1947. Don Berliner does a superb job of explaining the goings on at Roswell during the incident as well as the impact it had on the government's attitude about withholding information about the existance of exterrestrial craft visiting our planet. The startling element about this book that sets it apart from other UFO books about this subject is that the statements within are backed up by reasoning and research by Stanton Friedman. Mr.Friedman's tireless campaign of searching many archieves and the interviewing of eye witnesses adds greatly to this endeavor. Mr.Friedman believes in "research by investigation rather than proclamation". Here is an individual that has personally interviewed most of the witnesses involved in the incident that is willing to talk and still alive. I highly recommend this book and strongly urge those interested in UFO's and government conspiracies to purchase and read it.

This book offers all UFO buffs a rare insight into the world of true investigative research. Stanton gives 100% proof of a crash at Roswell and the subsequent military cover up. His reports and evidence from the people that were actually there in 1947 are both fascinating and outstanding. If you intend on reading one book on Roswell, then make it this one, you will not be disapointed. The overwheliming evidence given here along with eye witness testimonies and real documents secured through the US Freedom if Information Act will convince you of the major cover up that followed the crash. A book that once started you will find difficult to put down.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 6 July 2013
By Violet
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a good read, but it is written by Stanton Friedman and Don Berliner and I thought, when buying the book, that it was written by Stanton Friedman only. It was a little tedious at times, but fairly detailed. Stanton Friedman certainly knows what he's talking about. I have heard some of his lectures on you tube. He comes across as a very honest man who is looking for the truth, and he's very intelligent and thorough.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book on Roswell--But Not Perfect 28 Oct 2001
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you have ever taken interest in the UFO phenomenon and the grandest UFO story of all, the Roswell crash, this is the book for you. But it shouldn't be the only book you read on he subject.
The credentials of the author, Stanton Friedman, are impressive. Before he began working on UFO research, he was a respected nuclear physicist who worked on nuclear-thermal rockets. He takes a scientific approach to his research, and he has done a thorough job researching most of his material.
The point of the book is simple: an object of unknown (read: extraterrestrial) origin crashed in Corona, NM on July 2, 1947. At he same time, another UFO went down over the Plains of San Agustin. The US government realized the implications of these events and immediately confiscated all the evidence.
My complaints? Well, Friedman steadfastly denies claims made by his fellow researcher, Kevin Randle, that the main body of the craft went down just north of Roswell. He has subsequently debunked a lot of Randle's witnesses to that event, but little of that appears here. On the other hand, he presents the San Agustin crash with the testimony of only two individuals, one of whom died twenty years ago. It is possible that this event is the same as the "Socorro Crash" that Heseman and Mantell describe in their "Beyond Roswell." And Friedman defends the idea that a group named "Majestic 12" has withheld the UFO secrets since Roswell. Although there was some evidence suporting MJ-12 at the time, the idea has fallen from favor in the UFO community after fraudulent MJ-12 documents were discovered.
Crash at Corona is still the most scientific and accurate look at the confusing events in Roswell in July 1947. Still, the book should not be your only reference on this potentially world-shattering event. A true scientist and truth-seeker would read all of the Roswell books and draw their own conclusions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Friedman Tells The Real Truth About Roswell 9 Feb 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I heard Mr. Friedman speak at a local college and was intrigued by his speech. I bought this book and was amazed. I had heard about the Roswell crash, but never in such detail. He has names, places, and lots of evidence to point towards a huge government conspiracy. A must read for UFO junkies and conspiracy freaks

By Salim Mahdi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Stanton Friedman: One of the very few scientists ufologists who make sense.
He researches the topic.
He provides uncontested data.
He defied the arrogant scientists.
He studied the phenomena as an honest scientist.
He spent 30 years investigation Ufos.
He knows!
He knows!
His books are the very core of Ufology.
He is the ONE!
