Does extraterrestrial life exist? Have alien beings actually visited Earth and, indeed, left clear traces of their visits? One man has the answer...and his son can now break the silence.

The Roswell Legacy is the story of Major Jesse Marcel, the intelligence officer for the 509th Bomber Group (famous for dropping the atomic bomb on Japan), and the first military officer to reach the scene of one of the most famous and enduring UFO events in the recorded history of mankind. This book docments the recovery of debris from the crash of an extraterrestrial craft and how the Marcel family became forever linked to the event. It details what the debris looked like, how it greatly differed from that of the "weather balloon" that was supposedly recovered, and the physical characteristics that prove it could have only come from a technology that was not available in the 1940s (or, perhaps, even now).

    Very Good

    This book points out things others don't. For instance that Jesse Marcel was a trained intelligence officer assigned to the most elite military group in the world (the only one with atomic bombs and the ability to deliver them) and therefore would not have mistaken a weather balloon for a flying saucer. He points out that not only was his father not reprimanded for a mistake but was highly praised for his job performance.

    Very good incite on the background of the man.

    I Also Recommend:

    You can feel the pride

    Dr. Marcel begins with a background of his father. You can tell he had a profound admiration and respect for his father. He deftly combats the detractors and debunkers with his recollections and solid facts from his fathers war records. He talks of some of his own experiences and how this stories legacy has affected his family. He is a good man and one can see reflections of his father through him. I highly recommend this book.
