Product Description

Review

Sharon Chance Times Record News" (Wichita Falls, TX) "The Day After Roswell" could be the most significant and important book since the Bible.

From the Author

Corso again rings true with release of once-secret LBJ tapes
Over thirty years ago, Phil Corso was criticized as a right-wing paranoid fanatic when he suggested that there were two Lee Harvey Oswalds and that there was a plot to assassinate JFK. Although he was on record as breaking the U2 and POW stories, the Oswald story still lingered. Now, with the release of the LBJ tapes, readers can see with their own eyes that it was J. Edgar Hoover who first told President Johnson that the CIA knew there were two Oswalds. Again, history proves Corso correct. Also, check out the ACC site for the story of the transistor and Bell Labs. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
I cannot Stress this enough, this book is not a HOAX! This idea was perpetuated by the CIA. The book was initially intercepted in some States and was originally published with a forward stating that it was all entirely fictitious. Obviously the cover up still continues. I have heard an Interview with Colonel Philip Corso on ART Bell Radio show ( check it out on YouTube, highly recommended ) he explains all this. Also he initially started writing the book as a memoir for his Grandchildren so they would have something to remember him by. He wonted to write about what he was involved in during the Cold War. Therefore I doubt he would make a mockery of them or his memory. Those who say there's too much history and other stuff and the like should get a reality check. This man had a long history in the Military and was actually highly respected. If we can't take disclosure seriously from respected Military Personnel whom are approaching the end of their days then who can we trust? Too many high ranking people from all walks of life are now coming forward to say all this stuff is true. I hardly think by the way that Corso would have testified in front of congress for America Computer Company ACC, stating under oath that he was responsible for shipping out of Extraterrestrial artifacts to Bell Labs and IBM ( biggest giants of computer software and hardware in the US ) which they could then back Engineer. This has huge implications for Bell Labs, IBM etc, if this really is true? After the Transistor was first discovered in 1947 ( same year of Roswell crash? ) Nobel Prizes were awarded, Billions of Dollars have been made by Patents therefore fraudulently obtained. Anyone interested in this should google ACC, Jack Shulman, Lab Shop Keepers Notebook. "The Lab Shop keepers note book" is positive proof.Read more ›

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This potboiler of a book, co-authored by Bill Birnes and the late Lt. Colonel Philip Corso (US Army, retired), was a big seller in the populist middle-market and for thousands of readers the only thing they have ever read about the Roswell incident. For these reasons `The Day After Roswell' has had a disproportionate influence on popular culture and attitudes, so is in a small way important.

The cover blurb from the original hardback copy claims "As chief of the Army's Foreign Technology Division in 1961, Philip J. Corso stewarded the Roswell...alien artefacts in a reverse engineering project that led to today's integrated circuit chips, fiber optics, lasers, super tenacity fibers and `seeded' the Roswell alien technology to giants of American industry." Here is problem number one: Corso was never "Chief" of the Army's Foreign Technology Division in 1961, or any other time. The US Army's Foreign Technology Division at the time was very small with only two officers, and Corso was the junior of the two. The USAF's Foreign Tech Division was by contrast much larger and contained some 40 commissioned officers, and this is where all hi-tech stuff went for analysis.

Bill Birnes would have us believe that in 1961, Corso was handed a box of "space junk" from the July 1947 Roswell crash by General Trudeau, his boss at The Pentagon. Trudeau was conveniently deceased at the time of writing, so can't corroborate this story - and neither can anyone else. Now, were these precious items of alien technology stored in highly secure, climate- and temperature-controlled conditions while being worked on by the greatest scientific brains available? Well, no.

27 of 29 people found the following review helpful By MIKE CARTER on 5 July 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Following the recent untimely demise of both the editor and the magazine itself,UFO mag.readers have had no real forum for discussion. Yet, when this astonishing book appeared, even UFO Magazine reviewers seemed to overlook the importance of Philip J. Corso's nicely crafted account of what really went on at the heart of the US military and intelligence departments, during the 'Cold War'years.
It is so full of facts, names, and incidents (most of which are surely verifiable)that I simply can't believe that this dedicated old soldier would invent such a fantastic tale as he neared 80 years of age. I have read a great number of books on this general subject and I believe that this is the one to make sense of it all. It contains so much to digest and think over that I've just read it for the second time!
Don't be put-off by the vehemence of some (anonymous) critics: buy a copy and make your own mind up. I do believe that the truth really is there to be uncovered, but many with vested interests would rather you didn't.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In his book, Col. Corso gives an interesting account of our government's possible involvement with UFO's, particularly with regard to the alleged Roswell incident. He relates his 1960's Pentagon assignment to "seed" industry with items found at the crash site, and the resulting development of various technologies including micro circuitry, night vision goggles, surgical and weapons grade lasers, fiber optics, etc. Col Corso offers tantalizing information suggesting that with this alien technology SDI was developed and deployed long ago as a defense against intrusions into our air space by extra terrestrials (as well as to deter the Soviets) and the purpose of our moon missions was to establish a defensive military presence on the moon. He does not tell us whether these things actually happened. He suggests these events occurred over 30 years ago, and this makes me wonder what else could have been happening in the interim? The book is extremely interesting but I am left wondering whether it could be an experienced counter intelligence officer's (Col. Corso) attempt to gived new life to the Roswell myth for the same unknown reasons the original storey was told.
