Overview

For years, serious researchers have known that triangular-shaped UFOs are one of the most common types observed. The phenomenon has sparked intense debate among many and excited the imagination of many others. But until now, there has never been a book-length treatment of this fascinating subject.

Finally, we have one. David Marler has provided a comprehensive analysis of "the triangles." He has collected, collated, and analyzed hundreds of reports. In the process, he has created a detailed profile of these objects and written a rich narrative of their history.

Marler is well-suited to the task, having at his disposal an enormous collection of newspaper archives, declassified military reports, UFO books and journals, and the transcripts of many first-hand interviews he has conducted. He has also received input from many prominent individuals from within the military, FAA, Aerospace, and UFO research field.

He tackles the arguments made by skeptics that dismiss these triangular UFO reports outright. He also address the claims of so-called insiders who claim these objects are a creation of the U.S. military.

The results of his years of research are documented in his book, Triangular UFOs: An Estimate of the Situation. It is a book that has long been needed, not only by the UFO research community, but the general public, as it opens up an entirely new discussion that has long been ignored: who is making the triangles?

    Excellent review of relevant sightings & conclusions drawn from them

    Having developed an interest in ufology as a child in the late 1950's, I was interested in seeing what the triangular UFO thing was all about. The subject piqued my interest in the late 1980's with the Belgian wave of sightings of this kind of UFO. Prior to that, reports of triangular craft were rather infrequent, and after that, such reports seem to have grown in number.

    The phenomenon of triangular UFO's is unique in that it breaks the mold of what has traditionally been reported regarding UFO's. Firstly, it is not the traditional "flying saucer" in that it is not a saucer at all. Secondly, triangular UFO's display a consistency that is not seen in the rest of ufology in that reports of traditional flying saucers encompass a wide variety of shapes, lighting characteristics, behavior, and the like.

    Mr. Marler does an excellent job of focusing on triangular UFO's and showing how reports of triangular UFO's exhibit a consistency that is lacking in reports of other types of UFO's. He lifts sightings of triangular UFO's out of the context of ufology in general to give the reader an idea of just how consistent these kinds of sightings are in their details. This is required due to the fact that much of the details of these sightings have been virtually buried in ufology as a whole due to the relative infrequency of reports of such UFO's. This allows us to see the commonalities that occur with these kinds of UFO's that span both space and time.

    My only complaint is that Mr. Marler either failed to include or failed to fully explain some significant sightings of triangular UFO's. He brushed over the Belgian wave of the late 1980's and early 1990's and justified that by saying so much has been written about it already. Brief reviews of the Tinley Park and Hudson valley sightings were included, and the Phoenix sightings of the mid-1990's were not mentioned at all. It would have been nice if Mr. Marler had incorporated these sightings into his thesis to make his case even stronger and to give the reader who is a UFO novice insight into these important sightings and how they relate to the specific phenomenon in general.

    Despite this problem, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in UFO's. It contained relevant and important information and a perspective that was much needed to me personally and to ufology in general.
