Cover-Up at Roswell: Exposing the 70-Year Conspiracy to Suppress the Truth by Donald Schmitt

As we approach the 70th anniversary of the most significant UFO event of all time, best-selling author Donald R. Schmitt takes a fresh look at the renowned incident. Previous books on Roswell, including his, have focused on the witnesses, their families, and the history of the case. Cover-Up at Roswell catalogs the extreme measures the U.S. government exercised to suppress the truth.

How they silenced military witnesses clearly demonstrates their need to prevent the facts from leaking out. But more disconcerting are the tactics used against civilians and the media.

Over the years, the government has actually issued four different explanations for what took place in 1947, yet Roswell remains a mystery, shrouded in secrecy, cover-ups, and deception. Is a fifth explanation at hand?

Cover-Up at Roswell includes fascinating new information, such as:

  • The most comprehensive timeline of events ever written.
  • What the base commander's secretary confessed.
  • The answers to the 20 most frequently asked questions about Roswell.
  • The Roswell "smoking gun," provided by one of the very arbiters of the cover-up.

The search for the truth about Roswell continues. Are we brave enough to accept it?
