Nick Redfern’s new Roswell book – a “review”

Copyright 2017, InterAmerica, Inc.

I just got Nick’s latest endeavor, The Roswell UFO Conspiracy: Exposing a Shocking and Sinister Secret [Lisa Hagan Books, 2017], a sequel to his 2005 Body Snatchers in the Desert [Simon & Schuster]

His 2005 book, Body Snatchers …, caused a mild uproar among ufologists, not because it dismissed the Roswell incident but because if offered a thoughtful and well-documented alternative to the ET scenario that UFO buffs, especially Roswell addicts, applied to the 1947 alleged crash of a flying disk near Roswell, New Mexico.

Nick’s thesis then, as now, is that what really happened at Roswell was a highly classified government sponsored human experiment that involved birth-defective Japanese children and proto-typical balloons (aircraft).

His argument in the new book is spread out over 23 Chapters and 260 pages in which the whole of the Roswell saga is presented and, as usual with Nick, much that followers of the Roswell story have never heard, details and intrigues that bolster Nick’s premise.

Like many of you and Nick, I came to believe that Roswell didn’t involve an extraterrestrial craft that crashed and disgorged small-framed ETs, all badly disfigured and dead, except for one or sometimes two as the Roswell Johnny-come-latelies had it.

Something happened at (or near) Roswell and Nick provides the various theories and dog-eared “revelations” over the years, all of them.

But in this book he narrows the episode down to one: a military experiment that was sinister and evil that required a real cover-up, even to this day.

(That military and governmental experiments on humans, defective and not, were multiple has been mentioned here and in other places, the book Against Their Will: The Secret History of Medical Experimentation of Children in Cold War America [Palgrave MacMillan, NY, 2013] and others providing documentation that supplements Nick’s theme.)

Names common in the Roswell storyline appear and it seems that Nick has something on (or about) all of them.

I liked, particularly, Nick’s Chapter 18, Body Snatchers – The UFO Community’s Reaction – which is enlightening and sort of hilarious. (I suspect there will be a sequel similar to that with this new book.)

I hope many of you will grab a copy of Nick’s book, at Amazon ($14.49, paperback) or other book outlets.

You will not only be edified in many ways, about more than Roswell or UFOs, but also will become a witness to real down and superb journalism, something Nick Redfern keeps giving readers of his books.

As usual, I’ll have supplements to this “review” off and on as the book deserves more than the cursory romp given here.
