AREA 51: AN UNCENSORED HISTORY OF AMERICA'S TOP SECRET MILITARY BASE covers one of the most controversial military installations in the world, discussing the nature of 'black operations', classified air base information, and providing the first book based solely on recently declassified documents and interviews with firsthand eyewitnesses to base history. Her account discusses what really goes on in the Nevada desert and provides a fine narrative on the base's activities, showing how distinctions between fact and fiction blur under the cloak of secrecy. Any interested in Area 51 must read this-which includes general-interest, new age and military collections alike.
