    My wife and I were vacationing in Florida just a few months ago. Unfortunately, I forgot to take my reading “stuff” along on the trip. So, I needed something to read. Having always an interest in stories surrounding the Rosewell incident and UFOs, I bought your book “AREA 51.” What can I say? A fascinating read. Almost as if reading a good suspense thriller. As a retired academic, I give you an “A+” on your writing skills and research. Yes, I read every citation. Thanks for enlightening me on this part of American history.

  • Darren Perks says:

    I thoroughly recommend to anyone who has an interest in Area 51 to read Annie’s book. It covers the real history behind the facility and some outstanding research. I got detained for trespassing on Area 51 on May 14th 2012 with a film crew. That day the security on the border was non existent until we went too far onto the restricted area. I can tell you now that they have some stuff in there that will blow your mind, and yes it is the most sensitive military base in the world!

    Hello Annie,

    I hate to see anyone receive a bad rap regardless of one’s opinions and/or beliefs. I recently viewed a video in which aviation historian, J Miller, refuted your claim that the Soviets were involved in the Roswell incident. Miller stated that it would have been a physical impossibility for any craft to have been flown the 4000, 5000, or 6000 miles necessary to have accomplished such a feat at that time in history.

    J Miller demonstrated his ignorance of the Soviets’ capabilities in aviation with such a verbal presentation. He obviously only wrote books but did not read them. For, in 1937, the Soviets set a distance record by flying an ANT-25 some 7100 miles from Moscow over the North Pole to San Jacinto, CA. Interestingly, it is estimated that the aircraft still had enough fuel on board to fly an additional 930 miles if the pilots had elected to do so.

    I am sure you are already aware of this Russian record but, for the benefit of your readers, I present it here. Besides, I do not believe anyone should be called a historian if he/she does not know history.

  • Cheryl Harrod says:

    My husband just read Area 51 and suggested I might want to contact you as my father was intimately involved
    with this base in the mid 1950’s. I would love to find out if you came across his name in your research. Please contact me directly at email above so I can provide you his name and possibly new or supporting information.
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    In the 5-year long process of writing a book (fictional) about penetrating Area 51, I have done extensive research about this screwball locale (I am a diehard skeptic of all things paranormal and most definitely NOT a “UFOlogist), and I have to say that Ms. Jacobsen’s suggestion that the Roswell “aliens” were deformed children sent by Josef Stalin to arouse a national hysteria within American society is one of the most believable things I’ve ever read about the place. Certainly nothing can top the unbelievability of the U.S. Government itself, which continues to assert that Area 51 doesn’t exist, despite “GoogleEarth” images of the place which anybody and his brother can see at the mere push of a button. Every American needs to understand that their government holds them and their intellect in such base contempt, and nothing could be more patriotic than to blow the lid off this covert insane asylum once and for all.

    You are absolutely right.

  • Harvey Robertson says:

    Having been a student of the history of UFO’s for quite a few years now, I had to laugh to myself when you claim that the bodies recovered @ Roswell were disfigured young children! Really, who fed you this information and for what end purpose? On page 62 of your book you write the following ” In Central Intelligence Agency parlance there are two kinds of deception: cover and disinformation. Cover induces the belief that something true is in fact false; disinformation aims to produce the belief that something false is in fact true. It appears to me that you have put yourself in the unwitting position of serving the purpose of a cover! How much research and I mean, “deep research” had you performed about UFO’s before you went to print with this book?? May I recommend as a starter the Book “Wonders in the Sky” Unexplained Aerial Objects from Antiquity to Modern Times. Authored by Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck. Other than the (SNAFU) of “Cover” regarding Roswell, your book is a well written history of the actions of the “Powers that be”

  • Douglas Gray says:

    The book was definitely censored. To read a truly uncensored account of an incident at Area 51, google “David Adair Area 51”. He was a minor (age 17) at the time of his visit, and so could not be forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement. That one video is far, far more interesting than this entire book.
