Witness to Roswell was not the first Roswell related book I have ever read. It is most likely the 4th in my time, but what this book does offer is a short thumbnail of evidence and witness testimony not usually available.

Sceptics being debunkers in this day and age will profess the original story, a weather balloon crashed in Roswell. Forgetting for the moment that the Air Force has actually changed their story a total of four times since the incident (to help explain more and more evidence being uncovered by investigators), all of the records pertaining to this incident have been destroyed.

So we are left with the offical explanation that the head of base intelligence mistook a weather balloon for a vehicle from another planet! I don't buy it and no should any other thinking person.

A good piece of work from two investigative terriers.

Thanks in no small part to the tenacious pioneering work of Stanton Friedman in the 1970s and 80s the now famous July 1947 Roswell incident is known throughout the world as the definitive crashed UFO recovery, spirited away in secret by the US military and successfully covered up for 60 years.

Plenty of books about the Roswell crash have been published and one might think that after 60 years there would be little more to add. But it turns out there is a lot more, and real meaty stuff too. Tom Carey and Don Schmitt researeched the Roswell incident separately and together for years prior to the final publication of "Witness to Roswell" and both have written previous books and articles on the case. For this book they obviously did new primary research tracking down eyewitnesses and participants and recording testimony: some 600 people in total. The result is probably the definitive evidential summing-up of the Roswell incident and, due to the passage of time and the fact that witnesses grow old and don't live forever, is unlikely to be bettered. The verdict: what came down in the desert on Brazel's ranch in early July 1947 was of non-terrestrial origin, the wreckage was recovered by the US military, the craft and ET bodies were shipped by air to Wright-Patterson USAAF base on a B-29 (all documented), and the subsequent cover-up perpetrated by the government in Washington DC and its agencies was of unprecedented ruthlessness in threatening witnesses' lives and the lives of their families should any of them ever talk about the incident.

Carey and Schmitt must be commended for their thoroughness in tracking down all these witnesses and piecing together the complex story. The result is compelling reading, and in a perfect world where evidence is examined impartially, all but the most hard-line believer would be convinced. There is an abundance of detail about every aspect of the case including descriptions of the non-human bodies recovered from the crash and exactly how they were moved and stored.

Not one witness gives any credence to the absurd cover-stories manufactured by the US Air Force about weather balloons, mogul balloons or crash test dummies in vain attempts to "explain" what really crashed and to justify why thousands of special troops, National Guardsmen, Federal Agents and high-level Government officials from Washington DC poured into the Roswell area in July 1947 following the crash and remained until the desert floor was vacuumed clean, all evidence removed and all possible witnesses comprehensively intimidated into silence.

No mention from the authors of Philip Corso or the preposterous claims of his ego-driven fantasy "The Day After Roswell"- they stick to the serious and credible stuff, like corroborative multiple-witness testimony and verifiable facts.

Minor criticisms of "Witness to Roswell" might be that the book was passed for publication with a few too many typos, and the page-design with pictures inserted into the text, a cartoon graphic of a flying saucer at the start of every new paragraph and a little gray-alien head next to the page numbers might do a disservice to the essentially serious subject matter and be too frivolous a style for some readers. But hey, Roswell town went that way years ago, with its carnival-atmosphere festival every July complete with cartoon-style alien costumes and inflatable rubber aliens decorating main street. So yes, there is a lighter side to it all but when dealing with something as serious as the US Government perpetrating a cover-up and threatening a number of its most civic-minded citizens and their families with death if they ever dare speak out on what they witnessed, is such a trivial style appropriate?

Overall I would rate the book four stars and, if the reader can look past the typos and the tabloid-style page layout, recommend it as probably the definitive work on this most celebrated UFO incident. If you want to know just about everything there is to know about the Roswell crash, this is the book to read.

This book is the culmination of years of research on the Roswell Incident, not just by these two authors. The picture which has built up over the years is thoroughly convincing. Schmitt and Carey have conducted hundreds of interviews with around 600 witnesses (firsthand and secondhand). The sheer amount of man hours that have gone into producing something like this puts the majority of Fleet St journalists to shame. Anyone with a rational mind reading this, trusting the authors, will conclude with 98% certainty that Roswell happened and was real.
It leaves the question - Where did all that alien technology go?
The US Army's Foreign Technology division at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
And if you want to know about that it's in Col. Corso's book 'The Day After Roswell'. He worked for the Foreign Technology Dept in Washington DC.

Very interesting follow-up to the original book. The number of credible witnesses shows overwhelming evidence that some kind of exceptional event took place that July near Roswell. What is was is still a matter of debate, although witness statements generally testify to it being the crash of some kind of extra-terrestrial vehicle, perhaps with entities. The frustrating lack of any tangible physical hardware remains one of the stumbling blocks to finally laying bare this story. Attempts have been made to discredit the whole story but overall I still believe something extraordinary happened. The incredible effort the US authorities made to cover it up at the time and afterwards, suggests it was more than a balloon crash! There have now been three different official explanations for the event! Anyway, it is at the least a fascinating story, so I would recommend people to buy and read the book. It may be an important moment in history...or if the doubters are right it may just be a good story!

Witness to Roswell is one of the best books out there concerning the crash of a flying saucer outside Roswell, New Mexico, in July 1947. It helps to have basic knowledge about the events surrounding the Roswell Incident before reading it, however, as it doesn’t lay out the story of what supposedly happened in a linear fashion. Instead, it presents different aspects of the case from the perspective of those who witnessed them somewhere along the line. Perhaps the main strength of the book is the authors’ revelations of the most recent deathbed confessions of several witnesses and participants in the cover-up, men such as Brigadier Generals Arthur Exon and Thomas Dubose who held fast to their oaths of secrecy until the end of their lives. Dubose, who served as General Ramey’s Chief of Staff in 1947, stated in recorded interviews as well as a signed affidavit that a weather balloon was switched for the actual material from Roswell in advance of Ramey’s famous press conference to kill the flying saucer story – and that the orders for the cover-up came from Washington, D.C. That is powerful testimony that the Air Force has essentially ignored in its third and fourth official “explanations” for the Roswell Incident.

Unfortunately, any evaluation of this book begs the question of Donald Schmitt’s credibility. No researcher has worked harder or longer at researching the Roswell Incident and attempting to get the most reluctant of witnesses to finally tell their stories. At the same time, he has hurt the very case he is trying to make by initially lying about his education, accomplishments, and research methods -- which led directly to the end of his research partnership with Kevin Randle. Through his partnership with fellow researcher Thomas J. Carey, Schmitt has worked hard to restore his credibility over the past two decades. Unfortunately, his involvement with Jaime Maussan and the laughable “Roswell slides” fiasco has once again left his credibility in tatters – and dealt ufology another serious black eye. Although he makes a point in this book about dismissing all of undertake Glenn Dennis’ testimony after learning Dennis had knowingly given them a fake name for the nurse that told him about the alien bodies, he does continue to put faith in some witnesses whose testimony has been questioned elsewhere. To their credit, though, the authors do not even mention the extravagant claims of Philip Corso. All of that being said, I do not believe that Schmitt and Carey put forth any information in this book that they do not believe to be true – but I can’t in good conscience give the book five stars.

If you want to know the names and testimonies of any and everyone involved in the Roswell incident, from those who saw the debris field and crash sites to those who guarded and transported the material and bodies from Roswell to Fort Worth and Wright Field in Ohio, you will find all of that information – and more – in Witness to Roswell. The book really represents the most timely of statements as to what those involved with the Roswell Incident – with the obvious exception of those who chose to take whatever they knew to their graves – had to say about their experiences. If nothing else, it puts the lie to each of the official explanations offered up by the Air Force over the years.

This is a must read for anyone interested in finding out the truth about The Roswell Incident. Since the book was written, ex astronaut Dr.Edgar Mitchell has gone on record to say that the Earth has been visited by other intelligencies and that this has been covered up by the government
The book sets out to answer some logical yet important questions.
There have been at least three if not four official explanations by the U.S government regarding The Roswell Crash, each one different from the previous one, why, if it was a only a weather balloon?
The number of witnesses who wanted to set the record straight before they passed away by telling what really happened at Roswell, why, if it was only a weather balloon?
The frantic activity at the Roswell AFB and Hospital, with increased security and extra medical staff being brought in from other locations, why, if it was only a weather balloon?
The fact that all witnesses were threatened not to say anything to anyone, why, if it was only a weather balloon?
There is also the fact that initially it was announced that a Flying Saucer had been recovered and then that statement was subsequently retracted, which hardly instills confidence in the official explanation.
Somone has (in my opinion) unfairly commented that the book contains little or no proof of the event, even after 60 years. I noticed they did not purchase the book so I can only think they read a different one.

OMG we are not alone. This book is excellent. If you have even the slighest interest in Roswell read it! As the books title goes "Witness to Roswell" it should have been titled "Witnesses" and there are so many of them! I do not think that intelligent hard working men with family reputations to uphold, and having given long service in the Military and Army, would finaly break silence after more than 50 years in some cases making statements written on their death beds that what crashed in that desert in 1947 was not a weather balloon! The Authors have done an excellent job and if I had my way this body of work should be presented to the Government as firm evidence to once and for all admit the truth. Not matter what you believe, I do think that if the Government really did cover all this up back in 1947 then they were very right to do so.
Due to the unbelievable nature of what had occurred I do not think that the human post WII pysche could have coped with that type of statement. There would have been world wide panic, unrest, religions may have crumbled demands would have been made we would have been living in a world of terror and fear. This is a great book and should be read in the realistic manor it is written, I was very surprised. Full marks

A great book which goes a long way to silencing the sceptics - evidence not supposition. The 'can't be therefore it isn't' brigade need to study this book, which of course they won't. The authors have done an excellent job as investigators despite their work being very late in time. That governments lie when it comes to the UFO phenomenon is now incontrovertible. Anyone with an open mind will gain enormously from reading this book..

Review Of Carey & Schmitt's Witness To Roswell

Tom Carey and Donald Schmitt's new book, Witness To Roswell

just came out, which I just received from Amazon.com.

As the name attests, the book focuses on witness testimony, and

Carey and Schmitt have a slew of new witnesses to report,

including a few first-hand accounts of seeing the alien bodies.

There are also a ton of second-hand alien body stories, plus a

few to seeing the spacecraft either out at the crash site or in

the Hangar 84/P-3 at the base.

The hangar is the focus of many of the accounts, seemingly being

the centralized collection point for the debris, craft, and

bodies for further processing and transport out of the base.

The number of reports on alien bodies was surprising to me,

including several of a live alien. I had no idea there was so

much testimony along these lines.

The prize witness is Walter Haut, as most of us know, the

Roswell base public information officer, who put out Colonel

Blanchard's recovered flying disc press release on July 8, 1947.

Haut in 2002 filled out a notarized affidavit, to be sealed

until after his death. Here the affidavit is revealed in full.

Haut, as he first did in an oral history with Wendy Connors and

Dennis Balthaser in 2000, reveals seeing the crash object and

several small bodies with big heads at Hangar 84, being taken

there by Col. Blanchard. This was on Tuesday, July 8 in the

afternoon, after the press release had hit the wires.

Haut also reveals first hearing about the Brazel debris field

and another crash location 40 miles to the north, where the main

craft and bodies were, on Monday afternoon, July 7, after

returning to the base from home after the 4th of July weekend.

The northern site had just been found by civilians and rumors of

the two sites were beginning to break out in town and on the

base.

The following morning at 7:30, Haut attended the senior staff

morning meeting where everybody was briefed as to what was

happening. Marcel and Cavitt described their findings at the

Brazel debris field and Blanchard filled in everybody on the

second crash site.

Haut also states Gen. Ramey and Col. Dubose were there, meaning

they had flown in from Fort Worth.

Debris was passed around for everybody to handle and nobody

could identify it. Much of the meeting was devoted to discussing

how to handle the situation and what the public should be told.

Here Haut discusses some of the rationale behind the issuing of

the puzzling press release. According to Haut, it was Gen.

Ramey's idea to divert public attention away from the closer and

more important craft/body site. Haut felt Ramey was just

carrying out orders from the Pentagon.

Haut also states he went out to at least one of the sites and

brought back some debris of his own. He was aware of two teams

that went out for months afterwards to try to uncover any

physical evidence that might have been left behind. Although he

doesn't say it, Haut is here providing some corroboration for

various tales of debris confiscation afterwards, such as told by

Bill Brazel Jr.

Haut's affidavit plus other testimony below revives the crash

site 40 miles of north of Roswell where the main craft and

bodies were found.

Haut also presents a new timeline of the discovery of the site

on July 7, which means recovery began at this site at the same

time Marcel and Cavitt were out at the Brazel debris field

investigating it.

Another prize eyewitness is Sgt. Frederick Benthal. He was F.B.

in Crash At Corona, but here he is identified publicly for the

first time (or to me anyway). Benthal was the Army photographer

flown in from Washington, taken out to the body site, and who

photographed the alien bodies in a tent, with everybody else

cleared out.

Corroborating this was a first/second-hand account from an MP at

the site, PFC Ed Sain. He stated he was taken out to the site in

one of the ambulances and ordered to shoot anybody who tried to

enter a particular tent. His son said his father didn't like to

talk about it, but had told him he had guarded the bodies in the

tent until they were transported to the base.

Sain indicated that another MP, Cpl. Raymond Van Why, had gone

out with him to the site. Van Why's widow, Leola, said her

husband first talked about it in 1954 when he got out of the

service. He told her that he had been a guard at a crash site

and had seen the round spacecraft.

Sgt. Homer Rowlette was with the 603rd Air Engineering Squadron.

His son Larry and daughter Carlene Green said he told them about

it on his deathbed in March 1988. He was part of the cleanup

detail sent to the impact site north of Roswell. He handled the

infamous "memory foil" described by many others. He described

the ship as "somewhat circular" and said he had seen "three

little people" with large heads. At least one was alive (just

one of the 'live alien' stories).

PFC Rolland Menagh was another MP at the site, according to sons

Michael and Rolland Jr. He described the ship as egg-shaped and

seamless. Michael recalled him describing three dead bodies. His

father said they loaded the ship onto an 18-wheeler and covered

it with a tarp. He escorted it in a jeep as they drove it

through the center of town to the base and deposited it in a

hangar.

This brings us back to Roswell base.

S. Sgt. Earl Fulford saw his close friend, S. Sgt. George Houck,

drive off at 5:00 a.m. July 8 in a low-boy truck, which he

presumed was to pick up some wreckage, one of his standard

duties.

Fulford was an aircraft mechanic who often worked at Hangar 84.

During the day civilian mechanics from town kept questioning him

about the rumored spaceship with little spacemen. At 4:00 p.m.

as he left duty, Fulford saw Houck returning towing a lowboy

trailer and carrying a tarped object about the size and shape of

a VW Beetle. Houck refused to tell him what was under the tarp,

saying he had been ordered not to say. When Fulford tried to get

him to talk in the present-day, Houck still refused to talk

about it.

There was even more to Fulford's story. The next day he said he

was "volunteered" to be part of a work detail of 15-20 men taken

out to what we call the Brazel debris field to finish cleaning

it up. They were given burlap bags and ordered to pick up

anything "not natural".

He described an area hundreds of yards in extent and, like other

witnesses, said it was ringed with MPs. He said it had obviously

been cleaned up before, because there wasn't much left, and he

could see tire tracks from big trucks that had been there

hauling things away. He said he found only 7 pieces, and

described picking up and handling, like so many other witnesses,

the "memory foil" that returned to its original shape.

When he got back to the base, he was awakened at 2:00 a.m. the

next morning and ordered out to Hangar P-3. He was also a

forklift operator and was ordered to load a wooden crate, 7 feet

square, into an idling C-54. It handled as if whatever was

inside weighed very little.

Back at Roswell base, everything centers on Hangar 84/P-3.

Another eyewitness MP, PFC Elias Benjamin, described being

ordered to pick up his gun and go out to Hangar P-3 for guard

duty on the morning of July 8. He noticed unusually heavy

activity around base headquarters.

When he got to the hangar, the officer who had ordered him there

was being subdued by MPs. He later found out he had been to the

crash site, but when he saw the bodies at the hangar he had

flipped out.

Benjamin said he was placed in charge of escorting 3 or 4 bodies

covered with sheets to the base hospital. One of them appeared

to be moving. One of the sheets slipped and he saw a grayish

face and large hairless head of something that wasn't human.

When he got to the hospital and the sheets were removed, he got

a much better view of one of the bodies and gave a familiar

description of small body, large egg-shaped head, slanted eyes,

slit mouth, and two holes for a nose. He thought it was alive

and saw the doctors working on it.

Afterwards, he was debriefed, forced to sign a non-disclosure

statement, and told if he ever talked about it very bad things

would happen to him and his family. He still feared he would

lose his pension. His wife, who encouraged him to go public,

said he first told her the story in 1949 when they were married.

At the hospital, Miriam 'Andrea' Bush, 27, was a secretary to

the hospital administrator Lt. Col. Harold Warne.

According to her brother George and sister Jean, she came home

one night in a state of total shock. Finally she said that there

were a lot of strange medical personnel at the hospital she

didn't recognize.

Later Warne would take her to an examination room and she saw

several small childlike bodies. One was moving. (Another live

alien story) Their skin was greyish to brown and they were

covered in something like white linens. Their heads and eyes

were large.

The next day she came home and said nobody was ever to say

anything further about it. The family thought she had been very

heavily threatened. They said the event so traumatized her that

it ruined her life.

She died under suspicious circumstances in 1989, with bruises

covering her arms, but ruled a suicide by suffocating herself

with plastic bag tied round her head.

It is conceivable that mortician Glenn Dennis' "Nurse X" is

based in part on Miriam Bush, who would have been about the

right age and physical description.

There are several more MPs described guarding the hangar, to go

along with some previous accounts, such as from Sgt. Melvin

Brown. Pvt. Francis Cassidy told his wife, Sarah Mounce, of

seeing the bodies inside. Wanda Lida said her husband, Cpl.

Robert J. Lida, said he guarded the hangar and observed wreckage

and small bodies inside being prepared for shipment.

Several more witnesses to the heavily guarded B-29 crate flight

from Roswell to Fort Worth are provided.

We already knew about Robert Slusher and 'Tim', here publicly

identified as Lloyd Thompson.

One, S. Sgt. Arthur Osepchook, like the other men, was sure

something very important was inside the crate. One interesting

statement of his is that when they got back to Roswell they were

debriefed and told there were no such things as flying saucers

and that a crash of one didn't happen.

Two MPs described how they had guarded the plane as it was being

loaded over the bomb pit. One described how the pit was wrapped

with a double layer of fabric to prevent anyone from seeing in.

He had to patrol blind between the inner and outer layer of

cloth.

Perhaps the most interesting new B-29 flight account came from

Blanche Wahnee, daughter of Capt. Meyers Wahnee. She said her

father told the family that the Roswell Incident was true in the

last year of his life.

A high-level security officer, he was flown in from Fort Simmons

in Colorado to Roswell to oversee the transport of a "Top Secret

item" from Roswell to Fort Worth on a special B-29 flight.

The item was a single, large, wooden crate that Wahnee was to

accompany as a security guard in the bomb bay. He said it

contained the alien bodies recovered near Roswell. As did a few

other witnesses in the book, he also said there were three

sites.

Three sites? Well of course the Brazel debris field, the

body/craft site north of Roswell described by Haut and other

witnesses, but what was the third site?

According to Carey and Schmitt, this was yet another body site

near the Brazel debris field. The evidence for this is thinner.

There is the Frank Joyce story of Brazel coming to town in a

highly stressed state and describing very smelly non-human bodies

to him in addition to the large debris field.

They also mention young Dee Proctor, who the Proctor family said

was with Brazel when he made his debris field discovery, but

also reported he had seen something else that had severely

traumatized him. He never said exactly what it was, but he took

his mother Loretta to the spot in the 1994 when he thought she

might be dying.

C & S say the story of the Brazel debris field had already

circulated widely in the Corona area and many ranchers and

rancher kids already knew about it before Brazel reported it.

One of these kids was Sydney 'Jack' Wright. He told them that he

and two other rancher children had gotten there too. They

finally got him to state that, "There were bodies small bodies

with big heads and eyes. And Mack was there too. We couldn't get

away from there fast enough."

Another perhaps related account came from the widow of Sgt.

LeRoy, another MP. She said he was called away one evening to

go to a crash site outside of Corona "to help load the bodies."

When he returned home the next morning, he had a horrible stench

on his clothes. She burned the clothes, but the horrible smell

lingered on his body for another two weeks.

Carey and Schmitt feel that under the circumstances, Jesse

Marcel must have seen the bodies too when Brazel took them back

to the ranch and debris field.

They cite two witnesses who said Marcel did briefly mention

seeing the bodies, one a relative, Sue Marcel Methane, who said

he told her shortly before he died in 1986.

Another was Tech Sergeant Hershel Grice, a ground maintenance

crew chief, but who also was a member of Marcel's intelligence

team. Grice described Marcel as a "straight arrow." (Haut

described him to me this way also. Grice said Marcel described

the bodies as "white, rubbery figures."

There are numerous other witness accounts presented in the book,

some already well-known in the Roswell literature, some new.

I've covered most of the major new ones here.

One of the more interesting remaining ones came from four sons

of Lt. Col. Marion M. Magruder, a legendary WWII Marine aviation

commander.

According to them, on his deathbed, he confessed to seeing crash

wreckage and a live alien at Wright Field two weeks after the

incident in mid-to-late July 1947.

He had just started Air War College at Maxwell Field,

Montgomery, Alabama, attended by elite high officers who the

various services considered to be the future military leaders.

They were flown up to Wright Field to get their opinion on an

urgent matter. They were then told about the recovery of an

extraterrestrial spaceship that had crashed near Roswell,

examined wreckage, and then were led to another room and shown a

surviving alien.

Mike Magruder said his father described the "creature" as under

5 feet tall, "human-like" but with longer arms, larger eyes,

and an oversized, hairless head. It had a slit for a mouth and

two holes but no appendages for a nose and ears - the standard

'grey' description. There was no question in his mind that it

"came from another planet."

A number of other military witness accounts center around rumors

running rampant at the base of the flying saucer and bodies, of

something very big going on, a lot of security, severe warnings

to keep their mouths shut, and the base being in lockdown.

Some examples were other members of the 603rd Air Engineering

Squadron that witness Fulford was in.

PFC Eugene C. Helnes:

"It was definitely not a balloon. ...I know fellows who were out

at the site to clean it up. All the talk was of a crashed saucer

- right up to the time that I left the base in mid-1949."

Sgt. Harvie L. Davis:

"Stories were going around, and I don't doubt the people

involved. I believe that it was a UFO."

John Bunch:

"Everything was hush-hush. We all knew something was

going on, but we didn't know what. A lot of planes were coming

in and going out, and the airstrip was shut down for a period.

The base went into lockdown, and they checked us real close

going in and out."

So there you have it, a whole bunch of witness stories to chew

over, including various live alien ones. The description of the

main crash object is different here, having changed from a heal-

shaped or bat-wing shape into an egg-shape from several

witnesses, and also appearing to be a little smaller than

previously described.

Haut, e.g., in his affidavit described it as about 15 feet long,

and Fulford described the tarped object on the truck as about

the size of a VW Beetle.

Alien body descriptions are impressive in their consistency:

large heads, large eyes, small bodies, slit for mouths, two

holes for nose and ears, usually greyish or brownish.

I am also very impressed with the consistency of the accounts as

they often neatly fit together into a cross-corroborating

narrative of what happened, which I've tried to indicate in the

presentation of the various witness accounts.

It is also hard not to be impressed with the shear numbers of

witnesses that have been compiled. Can all of them be lying?

Would a Mogul balloon cause this?

I have some quibbles about the organization and writing up of

some accounts in the book. Tables summarizing witnesses would

have been very useful. There are very large numbers of them to

keep track of and they are often scattered throughout the book.

However, in general this is a very impressive body of testimony

that Carey and Schmitt have collected and has given me a lot of

things to think about.
