I have to say, I admired how the author attacked the subject matter of this book, and it seems she had mulitple sources for most of the material. And even if a fifth of this book is close to the mark, it's terrifying. The amazing tests (almost blowing a hole in the ozone layer, pilots flying through the mushroom clouds of exploded atom bombs), the stupidity of politicians and others in charge, the total disregard for the planet and life on it.

As I read this book, I kept thinking a Hollywood producer should snap this up. There's at least three different sections that would make for riveting television series.

And then, toward the end, Jacobsen seems to veer off into the conspiracy theories she seemed so careful to avoid for the majority of the book. When she gets to the Roswell incident of 1947, it's almost all conjecture. It's fascinating conjecture, but conjecture all the same. And it seems to defy logic.

Jacobsen spends most of the book detailing the various espionage efforts of the US to get intelligence from Russian flyovers. Great. Fine. We all know about how that turned out for Gary Powers. But then to indicate that Russia had hover and fly capabilities in a flying saucer vehicle...in 1947...and never ever expanded on it or ever used it again? For the next 70 years? Nah. Don't buy it.

But read the book. It's fascinating stuff. ( )

I got hung up on the weird side of this book, such as the possibility that the Roswell flying saucer that UFO chasers love to discuss really wasn't anything from out of space, but instead was a soviet built flying disc based on Nazi technology piloted by little people genetically altered by Josef Mengele, making them look like aliens. Other parts of the book discussed developments of military or CIA spy planes and nuclear weapons, much of which had been classified until recently. So Jacobsen does introduce some new material on these programs. But the conspiracy elements of the book, plus the argument that since the Government won't comment or confirm other theories somehow proves that they must therefore be true left me unconvinced.

The title sounded interesting and I put it on my reading list a few years ago. I came across the book at the local library and it was very thick. Instead of me reading it, I asked a friend to read it and give me a summary. The summary came back as if you want to know the exact date and details of all the projects of Area 51 are well represented; however, everything else was disinformation. So I'm glad that I didn't take the time to read this lengthy publication. No stars given.

NON-Fiction: Extremely interesting, full of insider info, but of course does not go up through the present, but still lots of good stuff here. ( )

Some glaring errors in here. But is an interesting read for all those intersted in conspiracy theories and secret stuf. Worth a read but don't buy it! ( )

Area 51, a U.S. military installation in the Nevada desert about 75 miles north of Las Vegas, has attracted rumor and speculation for decades, fed largely by the government’s refusal to discuss exactly what goes on there. In “Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base,” journalist Annie Jacobsen tries to get to the bottom of these secrets. What she comes up with is an informative history of Cold War spy planes sandwiched between an outrageous -- and thinly sourced -- tale involving Josef Mengele, Josef Stalin and flying saucers.

Armed with numbingly intensive documentation, Ms. Jacobsen has put together a set of strong allegations about Area 51’s covert history... “Area 51” is liable to become best known for sci-fi provocation. But the book is noteworthy for its author’s dogged devotion to her research.
