It is well known that ever since the first flying saucer was reported in June 1947 the Air Force has officially said that there is no proof that such a thing as an interplanetary spaceship exists. But what is not well known is that this conclusion is far from being unanimous among the military and their scientific advisers because of the one word, proof; so the UFO investigations continue.
What constitutes proof? Does a UFO have to land at the River Entrance to the Pentagon, near the Joint Chiefs of Staff offices? Or is it proof when a ground radar station detects a UFO, sends a jet to intercept it, the jet pilot sees it, and locks on with his radar, only to have the UFO streak away at a phenomenal speed? Is it proof when a jet pilot fires at a UFO and sticks to his story even under the threat of court-martial? Does this constitute proof? I'll give you the facts -- all of the facts. And you can decide for yourself.

Ruppelt was a man high up on the UFO chain however, his views may not be agreeable to everyone. No matter what your stance is on UFO's this book is a very good read. It teaches a lot of how they are looked at by the military. It also gives case by case analysis.

This is a good piece of work and the start of serious UFO documentation – must read! You may or may not agree with conclusions made, but as the start of the phenomenon, it is important. It demonstrates something I immediately noticed – the lack of drama in the older sightings that gives them an air of authenticity that PR-grabbing modern sightings lack. Blue Book used the first UFO “Filtering Device” on witnesses (a questionnaire) and thus got better data than many future efforts did.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
