Review

If what we read in this enthralling book is true, and I am afraid it is, the whole future of mankind could be at stake. --'Prediction'

The fruits of this research are laid out for us in a clear, logical manner, which adds credence to their findings and leads us from scepticism. --'Foresight' --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I was sceptical. Now I am not !
It took me about 2 days to read Charles Berlitz's book and it was two days well spent. Berlitz gives and interesting and not completely biased account of the Philadelphia Experiment. Berlitz uses very interesting data and evidence that is quite hard to deny and prove inconclusive.
Whilst I am not completely convinced that the sailors of DE 173 did actually suffer the effects that they did, it is more than obvious that something extremely sinister and amazing did happen in the Philadelphia Naval Yard in 1943.
There is a lot of information about Einstein's Unified Field Theory which helps to understand th myth of the Philadelphia Experiment. Einstein tried to destroy the theory papers because he feared what man would do with it.
We are only human, there is a whole universe of science that we cannot even begin to imagine or understand. We have messed with things that we cannot fathom. Lets just hope that we do the sensible thing and leave it alone.

Right from the start this is a fascinating read. For those of us interested in the unusual, mysterious and the hushed up, swept-under-the-carpet things in life, then this is high on the list. This experiment involved the use of a hugely powerful, magnetic field generated on board a navy ship. When in operation, the boat was supposed to have become invisible, whether to the naked eye or to radar, I'm not sure, but the experiment is said to have succeeded in a dramatic fashion, perhaps also teleporting the whole ship.......................read the book.

Too many people associate the events of the Philadelphia Experiment with the movie of the same name and as such creates an unbelievable element to an otherwise interesting story.
This book does well in providing the evidence for and against the events from everything to eyewitness accounts, navy records, Einstein's involvement and a crucial background into Carlos Allende (a key witness in the whole affair).
But what the book also does well is present the evidence in such a way as to allow the readers to come to their own conclusions without bias.
Did the experiment really take place? Read this book and decide for yourself.

This a good read. It is sometimes fascinating but other times a bit vague. Although quite a lot of time has past since the event. Some of the characters featured in the book such as Einstein must have seemed so far ahead of their time back then. Their theories are just as interesting as the conspiracy of the Philadelphia experiment. Overall this is very good read and isn't too complicated.

Fascinating accounts of sea tests undertaken by the US navy during WW2 off the coast
of Virginia with a warship the USS Eldridge. I found it dry
with too much scientific statistics this is unavoidable as the author has to
corrolate the facts with the data. Left me somewhat disappointed because later
information released purports to discount much of Charles Berlitz account.
And we are still no wiser now as to what really took place all those years ago.

Format: Paperback
Is it all true ? Did they really make a ship invisible ?
Or was it all a miserable failure? or even a totally made up story? - You decide for yourself. This book does have many interesting points in it, and covers many peoples accounts of the actual event, though how much of it is true, and how much is purely exageration is anyones guess. Something to read while on the train to work, or while sitting on toilet.
