His story is pieced together from interviews from some anonymous sources that, while he did verify some of their facts, leave one wondering if he wasn't fed some of this information for other reasons.
I don't believe in spoilers but the gist of the book is that it wasn't aliens that crashed in Roswell but a very human, albeit nefarious, military experiment. The years of resulting alien controversy is simply a cover-up to mask the atrocities conducted by the US government. Nick lays the story out in detail but, as always in a case like this, there's room for doubt. I like the book. I like the ideas presented and I love Redfern's style.

I think too many years have passed for us to ever really know what happened in for sure; too many years of deception. Nick Redfern presents an interesting theory and will follow it up with a new book soon. We'll have to see what new evidence is presented then. First of all, a disclaimer: I'm something of a fan of Mr. I think he's fun to read, and he must be a brave man to go monster-hunting in creepy places all over the planet.
Redfern works hard to corroborate the secret sources. He has done a massive amount of research into the Roswell Incident, and although it's controversial, his theory about American use of human test subjects in nuclear research needs to be part of that extended conversation I do wonder, however, how any policy-maker, civilian or military, could in in the shadow of World War II and of Nazi atrocities, order human tests while the Nuremberg war-crime trials were filling the headlines.
It seems like the risks would have far outweighed the benefits. Redfern details a number of U. This part of the book relies little on confidential courses and seems to be taken mostly from declassified public-domain materials. Redfern's monster-hunting volumes, which contain a considerable amount of humor.
So, in summary, I enjoyed "Body-snatchers" cover to cover. This is a very interesting book, and provided some valuable information for me.crm.vetal.com.ua/assets/single-kochkurse/1207.php
Body Snatchers in the Desert by Nick Redfern
One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The book answers the question: Why would the military want to keep the UFO story alive? Nick Redfern does a great job of recapping the history of the famed Roswell UFO crash of July , reviewing the documentary evidence and leading theories, and then quickly moving into what he believes to be the most plausible explanation.
Body Snatchers in the Desert: The Horrible Truth at the Heart of the Roswell Story
This was not a theory he came up with on his own, but was suggested to him by several sources who approached him after various speaking engagements. Redfern sets the events in the context of the post-war military experiments being carried out at the time. And the rush to complete cruel and unethical medical tests before the outrage created by the Nuremburg trials could shut them down. Thoroughly researched and well-documented, the book is interesting from beginning to end. My Husband read this book, he is usually not a reader, but couldn't put this book down. We visited Roswell three years ago my husband thought the book had some very good explanations of what DID happen at Roswell.
I really struggled with this book. It was like listening to a symphony with on note playing over and over again. I appreciate the fact that I was getting a new look at the Roswell incident;however I just didn't need all the eternal proofs and I believe that Nick was trying too hard to convince himself, and this made for extremely boring reading. This would have played better as an article in.

Any balloon big enough and tough enough to carry a useful payload and the glider to deliver it would probably have a larger radar profile than a conventional bomber of the same payload, with the added disadvantage of being unable to maneuver or navigate reliably.

Even if the Army was working on such a glider bomber, why would they use Japanese test pilots? Redfern implies that they were needed because of their small size, just to add a little racism to the book. This book may may make interesting background for fiction, or a case study of how The X-Files has influenced the paranormal field. Sep 13, Matthew Kresal rated it liked it. Compelling but far from convincing alternative explanation for the events in the New Mexico desert in that's become known as the Roswell Incident. It's compelling in that Redfern presents a very good case that a number of secretive projects ranging from medical experiments involving the notorious Japanese Unit to the precursors to the modern stealth bomber were all taking place and that the full story behind US government sponsored medical experiments has yet to be revealed.

Where the book is far from convincing is making all of that tie into Roswell because there's, as Redfern himself admits, basically nothing that does so outside of a handful of people most of whom aren't named but instead are called "Black Widow" and "The Colonel". Also, showing the book's age being published close to a decade ago now , Redfern attempts to use the now discredited "Alien Autopsy" film as further proof of his theory. The book then overall is an intriguing side-chapter of the Roswell controversy but far from a final word.
