The first, comprehensive military history of armed confrontations between humans and extraterrestrials

Although close encounters with alien space craft are reported as far back as the reign of Pharaoh Thutmosis III in Egypt, it wasn't until the 20th century that UFO sightings and extraterrestrial encounters were truly documented, due to advances in technology and record-keeping as well as the vast increase in incidents, particularly with military forces.

Revealing his extensive research and the verifiable evidence he's discovered, Frank Joseph presents a comprehensive military history of armed confrontations between humans and extraterrestrials in the 20th and 21st centuries. He explains how, with the development of atomic bombs and ballistic missiles, the frequency of extraterrestrial intervention in human affairs increased dramatically. He documents incidents both famous and little known, including the explosive demolition of U.S. munitions factories in 1916 by unearthly aerial vehicles, the Red Baron's dogfight with a UFO during World War I, "foo fighter" sightings and battles with Allied and Axis combatants during World War II, and eye-witness reports from encounters during the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War in Iraq, and the ongoing hostilities in the Middle East.

The author also examines recent, 21st-century examples of alien interdiction in Earthly affairs, such as the meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan and the fiery abort of Elon Musk's Falcon 9 missile launch, both events accompanied by UFOs. Offering complete disclosure of the multitude of ET events over the past century, Frank Joseph gives us the first true reference book in the field of alien military encounters.

Review quote

"Professor Stephen Hawking once cautioned that any interaction between aliens and humans could result in a significant threat to our survival as a species. Frank Joseph presents compelling evidence that such contact may already have taken place." * Peter B. Davenport, director of the National UFO Reporting Center * "Frank Joseph is a thorough researcher and a great writer. He is offering a new chapter for ufologists to learn more about military confrontations between humans and extraterrestrials. I support his quality of research and the verifiable evidence that he has discovered." * Bruce Widaman, former state director of the Missouri Mutual Unidentified Flying Objects Network * "By equal measures, intriguing and terrifying. If just one of these incidents occurred as described in Military Encounters with Extraterrestrials, our history books will need to be rewritten." * Nick Pope, U.K. Ministry of Defense (retired) *
