I had read it years ago and it's a decent read for what it is.One of the most interesting things in the book is the idea that a lot of modern technology is supposedly back engineered from alien technology.The book also goes int how the Star Wars program wasn't supposed to defend us against the USSR but a possible alien invasion.
R1, Thanks for your response. Do you think that the author is "tin hat" or more grounded in reality? Is he speculating or basing his interpretations on fact?
There are stories in the book that are covered elsewhere. So it's not the only book to make those claims. BTW here is Corso's CV:
After joining the Army in 1942, Corso served in Army Intelligence in Europe, becoming chief of the US Counter Intelligence Corps in Rome. In 1945, Corso arranged for the safe passage of 10,000 Jewish World War II refugees out of Rome to the British Mandate of Palestine. He was the personal emissary to Giovanni Battista Montini at the Vatican, later Pope Paul VI, during the period when the "Nazi Rat Lines" were most active.
During the Korean War (1950–1953), Corso performed intelligence duties under General Douglas MacArthur as Chief of the Special Projects branch of the Intelligence Division, Far East Command. One of his primary duties was to keep track of enemy prisoner of war (POW) camps in North Korea.[ Corso was in charge of investigating the estimated number of U.S. and other United Nations POWs held at each camp and their treatment.
Corso was on the staff of President Eisenhower's National Security Council for four years (1953–1957).
In 1961, he became Chief of the Pentagon's Foreign Technology desk in Army Research and Development, working under Lt. Gen. Arthur Trudeau.
Corso has a resume,he's no pretender that lives in Mom's basement!
