4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it, 9 July 2012

This review is from: UFOs in Wartime: What They Didn't Want You to Know (Mass Market Paperback)
This is on of the new breed of ufos books that have hit our shelves over the past year or so and it is an enjoyable read. I am very much into ufos, as from a philophical perspective it makes sense that Earth isn't the only planet that has life. For some years now I have held the view that ufos of the et variety are waiting and watching for the human race to grow up and hence Mack Maloneys thoughts on the frequency of such events in wartime do make sense to me. I found Winston Churchills wartime directive on the issue amusing (you will have to read the book to see what it was), and it seems that as back in his day the current position in the UK at least hasn't much changed (no defence significance - as they never attack). Yet we reportedly shoot them down or at least try to. Must make us popular. Anyhow like other reviewers I am disappointed in the pictures hence 4 stars, but for a book that got me thinking more about the phenomenon, and about how human nature interacts with it in the military sense, I liked this book. It is easy to read but could use a contents page.

If you are new to the phenomenon it will open your eyes as to how well reported these things are, and realise that it is not simply do-lally souls who see such things. I was a bit disappointed in the Roswell chapter in that I remain suprised that such senior USAF officers at such a key nuclear base could make such an error, and I think that a little more in depth comment as to how and why such a senior key officer could get things so wrong would have added a lot, especially since this is possibly the best known case.

Overall a cracking read if you have an open mind and are interested in our place in the universe and if you like to read what pilots report.
