Mankind had reached a threshold in the forth decade of the twentieth century. There were unprecedented scientific and technological achievements, but despite such progress, humanity was entering one of its darkest chapters. World War II would grip the world with terror for six years. During that time military personnel reported seeing numerous highly unconventional aircraft in all theaters of operation. These objects had extraordinary flight performance capabilities, came in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, and were able to travel at extraordinary speeds and avoid radar detection.
"Strange Company" is the first in-depth account of unconventional aircraft observed and reported by the military during World War II. It includes the reactions by military commands, their viewpoints, and theories as they struggled to make sense of the observations. Strange Company presents one of the greatest wartime mysteries, one that has been shrouded in ignorance for more than sixty years. And it suggests that while an immense twentieth century war was raging on Earth, there appeared to be someone, or something, from somewhere else, watching us.

The idea behind the book is great. It's just that the writer gives too much info. All I wanted to read about was what happened, where it happened, and maybe what the pilots where thinking and feeling. But writer gives every little minute detail such as the documents the military use to keep track of the time the plane took off, what order number they filled out to fly the plane; they give too much info. blah! Just tell me the basics and lets get on with it. But still, after wading thru all the unnecessary documents, it was interesting.
