Description

The best-selling UFO book of 2007/2008 is revised and updated with even more hard-hitting eyewitness testimony of one of the most important events of all time: the actual recovery of a UFO outside of Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.

For more than 60 years, government authorities have led us to believe the wreckage was merely a very conventional weather balloon - but the witnesses who were there continue to tell a different story.

Witness to Roswell once again takes you on a "can't put down" written account of what really transpired in Roswell, 61 years ago. It pries loose the truth the government doesn't want us to know.

The best book on the world's most famous UFO case.

I had just finished reading the print edition when I saw the audio version available, featuring one of my favorite narrators, Eric Summerer. I immediately bought it, and I listened to it straight through. WOW - it is immensely enjoyable and definitely the best book ever written about the world's most famous UFO case - the reported crash of a UFO near Roswell, New Mexico, in July 1947. It contains the eyewitness testimony of hundreds of persons living in the Roswell area at the time, and the tale they tell is amazing. I cannot envision anyone reading or listening to this book with an open mind - and still thinking the Roswell case is untrue.

Made me a believer!

Although I have had an interest in UFO stories since I was a pre-teen, it was more wishful thinking than anything. As far as Roswell stories, I was puzzled as to why they just didn't fade away. After listening to this book, I truly believe the Roswell incident did involve a crash of an extraterrestrial vehicle. Everything rings true including the government coverup and particularly the death threats to keep witnesses quiet. I do believe this is just how our government would act once they convinced themselves it was a matter of national security.
The information in this book speaks for itself. It makes me really angry that a handful of people can decide to keep this information from the rest of the world.
If you are at all curious about this subject, give this book a try. It is well-written and expertly narrated. Then, decide for yourself. Make an informed decision.

The Most Careful and In-Depth Report on Roswell

What did you love best about Witness to Roswell?

The solid journalistic and investigative research that supported every statement in the book. Remember, the authors originally initiated their investigation in order to DEBUNK the Roswell UFO incident once and for all. But the more they investigated, the more that creepy evidence for the event itself, and its shockingly brutal coverup by the U.S. government, became clear, until their finished product (the first version of this book) ended up being 180 degrees different in its findings and conclusions, from what they expected when they began. I also appreciated their "trial of the facts to a jury" approach: what is the evidence on each side, and who has the preponderance of the evidence? Finally (finally!), someone has called the debunkers on their claims of "it's just circumstantial evidence" and "it relies only on eyewitness testimony." These are perfectly valid forms of evidence in any court of law - people have even been sentenced to death based on this very type of evidence! What makes this evidence so flimsy in the minds of the debunkers? Hmm? True, the Roswell incident does not rise to the level of "scientifically-established fact" (and how very many things we all routinely rely on in our day-to-day lives which do not), but the "alien theory" would actually be the hands-down winner in any court of law that heard all the available evidence. And this book, more than any other available on the subject, presents ALL the available evidence.

What other book might you compare Witness to Roswell to and why?

"The Roswell Legacy," by Jesse Marcel's son, Jesse Marcel, Jr., for further support that what the highly-trained Major Jesse Marcel originally found and reported was not the "foil, balsa wood and string" of a weather balloon, but materials never before recorded as having been encountered. The focus of that book is tighter, not as panoramic, focusing more on Major Marcel's discovery, the unique materials found at the impact site, his initial report and subsequent coerced "retraction" news conference, and the effect all this had on him and his family for the rest of his life.

What does Eric Michael Summerer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Absolutely perfect narration and emphasis for this book.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

The horrific, unconstitutional and illegal treatment of private citizens (such as death threats to a 12-year-old girl, among many others!) by the military, in order to silence any talk about -- a crashed weather balloon??

Any additional comments?

For the listener (as no doubt for the reader), this can get to be dry, stale and repetitive in places. Despite my intense interest in the subject, I found myself glazing over at several sections. (That may have had as much to do with the time of day and the low caffeine level in my bloodstream, I don't know.) That said, for its sheer comprehensive treatment of the subject (and it's many startling and engaging sections), this book deserves no less than all 5 stars. With the many first-hand and even second-hand witnesses starting to pass away, this book may (sadly) represent the "final, best record" on the Roswell UFO incident (much as I believe "Columbine" by Dave Cullen is going to represent the "final, best record" for the Columbine massacre).

a lot more than i imagined

i thought i knew the story, but i was mistaken. it was very well put together, and the narrative quality was superb. i could not have been more pleased. it has been well documented, names, places, rank. a very in depth story and explanations i never thought of. this book is most certainly a must have for anyone even slightly interested in the roswell story.

excellent read

this is one of the best books that I have ever read on this subject. I challenge anybody that has read this tell me that they are still an unbeliever or at least further study this subject with an open mind.

Interesting, but lacking and biased

Interesting. While I generally believe pretty much everything the authors say, I don't think they did a convincing argument. They put full credibility in any witness statements that support their viewpoints, while downplaying any opposition. The authors tell you (the reader) several times how easily their evidence would stand up in court, yet they really didn't present evidence that would stand up that way. So it was an interesting listen, but didn't really change my mind in either direction.

As a side note, I am very surprised that audible didn't use any editors on this. After the book is finished, the last half hour is a repeat of chapter 27. There were other small skips and repeats in it too, but to repeat a full chapter was amazing.

Interesting evidence

Any conspiracy theorist would love to read this book. The information presented is interesting and leads one to believe there was some kind of cover up. Whether or not it was aliens is still undetermined in my eyes.

Well written account with good research.

What did you love best about Witness to Roswell?

Its seems that the author was dedicated to doing extensive research on this book. Claims weren't

What did you like best about this story?

Interviews with eye witnesses weren't embellished to make the story better. Many of the accounts, ironically, produced more believability by exposing emotions of a nature of what you'd expect from normal people. Some people had nothing to say. Thats normal. Sometimes the message is in the way you completely change your life to cope. That also speaks volumes.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Especially interesting and eyeopening is the testimonial of a career officer who reveals his story in a notarized letter to his family after his death. I don't know of many respected souls who would work their whole life to build respect so that it could be thrown away in one instant. I suppose the military and government

Any additional comments?

I didn't expect much from this book after reading reports in the last 15 years, that the USAF had re-evaluated Roswell and come up with findings that showed no new evidence proved anything but that a weather balloon crashed and that

Interesting stories. But do I believe?

I enjoyed this book pretty much the whole way through. I found that at times I drifted off in my listening but overall it was worth the listen. not sure if I actually believe any of it.
