|The Day After Roswell by Philip J. Corso and William J. Birnes|
If you've ever wondered what crashed into the desert near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, this book will give you some startling answers. While the first version was published in hardcover in 1997, Corso provides new evidence for the presence of alien intruders in this pocket paperback edition. Whether or not you believe his contention, the sheer weight of governmental sources and documentation presented by the former Army intelligence officer is not easily dismissed. Once you understand the historical context (in the midst of the Cold War soon after World War II, with Orson Welles having recently inspired panic in citizens with his fictional War of the Worlds radio broadcast), the military deciding to cover up a real-life alien ship becomes more credible. Corso also gives a convincing explanation of why reports were so multi-various and conflicting. Even if you believe the book is utter fiction, it's still a compelling read.

The Roswell Ufo Crash : What They Don't Want You to Know by Kal K. Korff
Did a flying saucer really crash in the New Mexico desert? According to popular belief, in early July 1947 the U.S. military secretly recovered the remains of a crashed UFO and its alien crew near the town of Roswell, New Mexico. There is no doubt something occurred at that remote desert outpost; the question is what, and has our government been hiding the facts for half a century? Now, on the fiftieth anniversary of the alleged crash, Korff has undertaken to examine and explain what may be one of the most baffling UFO cases of all time. He uncovers information never before published - military records, formerly classified projects, and correspondence - revelations powerful enough to change public opinion forever. He systematically examines the testimony of virtually everyone who claims to have been involved - from Mac Brazel, the rancher who found the "crashed saucer," to Maj. Jesse Marcel, who helped recover the material, to the military personnel who may have formulated the world's greatest cover-up. Korff assesses the claims of the "new" witnesses, the confusion regarding two "crash" sites, and the "alien" materials recovered. He even includes an evaluation of the "alien autopsy" film. Korff concludes his expert analysis with a chapter that clearly distinguishes fact from fiction.

The Roswell Incident by Charles Berlitz and William L. Moore
The crash of a flying disk near Roswell, New Mexico is the landmark event in UFO history, yet there is no concrete proof of any extraterrestrial presence at the site. Charles Berlitz and William Moore adamantly maintain that the evidence does exist, but is buried under lies and threats from the United States government. While I have to reserve judgment, I am fascinated by the chain of evidence presented in this book, which is something of a sacred text in UFOology.

The Truth About the Ufo Crash at Roswell by Kevin D. Randle and Donald R. Schmitt
In this sequel to their UFO Crash at Roswell (1991), Randle and Schmitt offer new witnesses and a revised chronology for the alleged crash of a UFO and its retrieval by the U.S. Air Force near Roswell, New Mexico, in July_ 1947. They shed new light on the two distinct sites where evidence of a crash was found, one only 35 miles from Roswell, where alien bodies and a strange craft were found, and the other much farther away, where rancher Mac Brazel discovered a huge amount of bizarre metallic debris. The ominous threats made by military personnel to civilians who had some knowledge of the event contrast sharply with the official cover story that only a weather balloon had been found. The cover-up was so effective, Randle and Schmitt say, that only a glimmer of the truth would begin to emerge years later. Several chapters demolish claims that the debris was from a weather balloon, a Japanese balloon bomb, a V-2 rocket test, or an experimental aircraft.

The Real Roswell Crashed-Saucer Coverup by Philip J. Klass
Called "the Sherlock Holmes of UFOlogy, " Philip J. Klass claims to have the inside scoop on what really crashed at Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947 and the subsequent cover-up.
Klass presents the evidence surrounding the Rosewell incident (and the non-evidence invented by the UFO-hucksters) and arrives at the only logical conclusion. The Rosewell "crash" involved a lot of coverup, and no aliens. This book serves as an excellent source for debating the credulous, and along with Kal K. Korff's "The Rosewell UFO Crash : What they don't want you to know" it buries the Rosewell Myth deeper than the Loch Ness. The Truth is Out There. And you can find it in this book.

Roswell 1947 I was there by Robert J. Shirkey
This is the only book written by an eyewitness to the Incident. Few are left who "were there," to give firsthand accounts. In general, researchers have accurately reported portions of the "Roswell Incident," but some have sensationalized and falsified many aspects of it. Knowing of these distortions of the truth prompted Shirkey to write down what he knows. This book is factual and an accurate accouting of those shocking eight days in early July, 1947.
Robert J. Shirkey was born and reared in Schenectady, N.Y. He was accepted into the USAAF on Dec. 10, 1942. After completing Advanced Flying School he was trained as a B-17 pilot and later at Roswell in B-29's. In the spring of 1947 he was nominated for promotion to Captain and assigned as Assistant Group Operations Officer of the 509th Bomb Group.
