Too much "how" and not enough "why",
By A Customer
This review is from: The Day After Roswell: A Former Pentagon Official Reveals the U.S. Government's Shocking UFO Cover-up (Mass Market Paperback)
Despite the book's claim of documentation, I was surprised to not find any which supported the crash and recovery of a UFO and its occupants at Roswell. There was also little or no documentation to support Col. Corso's claim of dissemenating technology from the crash into intustry and to government contractors. Anoter dissapointing aspect of the book is the Colonel's unwillingness to elaborate on the grand scheme of the aliens' agenda to "collect biological specimens from Earth for experimentation." To me the most interesting part of the book was that the author claimed that he, along with the rest of the government officials involved, beleived that the aliens are not benevolent but that their intentions are hostile. I would much rather have read more on the intentions of the aliens than about the distribution of their technology. Still, I found it very intriguing and was very interested to find a book written on the topic by a former Pentagon Offici! al. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in the "nuts and bolts" (not paranormal) aspect of UFOs. Just take it with a grain of a salt, because I beleive that this a mixture of fantasy and reality woven together for who knows what purpose. The complete truth probably went to the grave with Col. Corso.
