This, Donald Keyhoe's first book originally published in 1950, was written whilst he was still a serving officer in the US Marine Corps (with the rank of Major) and had an office inside The Pentagon.

Keyhoe had access to original UFO sighting reports from military pilots in the late 1940s when the whole issue was more open and before the information clampdown became really effective. His conclusion that the UFOs represented some non-human and probably interplanetary technology was sound and reasoned against the weight and nature of the evidence - though interestingly in 1950, Venus and Mars were thought to be the likely source of visitation, as the current level of understanding of physics was simply insufficient to support the idea of interstellar (let alone "inter-dimensional") travel. The book contains a large number of meticulously documented and really astounding sighting and contact reports, mainly from aircraft crews both civil and military. The writing style is straightforward and sticks to the facts, and yet at the same time racy and interesting.

Keyhoe was one of the greatest researchers in the history of the UFO phenomenon, and a tireless and persistent campaigner for the Air Force and the early INTELS to be more open with the public about the subject. This book deserves the accolade of a true classic, an over-used word which in this particular case is fully justified.

The Flying Saucers Are Real

AUTHORS NOTE.

On April 27 1949. The US Air Force stated:

"The mere existence of some yet unidentified flying objects necessitates a constant vigilence on the part of "Project Saucer Personnel" and on the part of the civilian population.

"A must have for any ufologists library."
