    DescriptionIt is the most famous military installation in the world. And no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside of it. Until now. This is the first book based on interviews with scientists, pilots, and engineers - 58 in total - who provide an unprecedented look into the mysterious activities of a top-secret base, from the Cold War to today. With a jaw-dropping ending, it proves that facts are often more fantastic than fiction, especially when the distinction is almost impossible to make.

    Review quote
    'An extraordinary book ... Discovering what really happened at Roswell is the holy grail of conspiracy theorists ... What if there were not one but two conspiracies involving Cold War propaganda rather than visitors from another planet? ... Based on unprecedented interviews with personnel at Area 51 Jacobsen's argument may not be as outrageous as it sounds' DAILY EXPRESS 'Area 51 is not science fiction. It is an assertive account, revelatory ... Ms Jacobsen has put together a set of strong allegations about Area 51's covert history ... Her research is compellingly hard-hittting ... the book is noteworthy for its author's dogged devotion to her research ... it makes an indelible impression' NEW YORK TIMES
