Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base
by Annie Jacobsen
It is the most famous military installation in the world. And it doesn’t exist. Located a mere seventy-five miles outside of Las Vegas in Nevada’s desert, the base has never been acknowledged by the U.S. government-but Area 51 has captivated imaginations for decades.
Myths and hypotheses about Area 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Others believe that the lunar landing itself was filmed there. The prevalence of these rumors stems from the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now.
Annie Jacobsen had exclusive access to nineteen men who served the base proudly and secretly for decades and are now aged 75-92, and unprecedented access to fifty-five additional military and intelligence personnel, scientists, pilots, and engineers linked to the secret base, thirty-two of whom lived and worked there for extended periods. In *Area 51,* Jacobsen shows us what has really gone on in the Nevada desert, from testing nuclear weapons to building super-secret, supersonic jets to pursuing the War on Terror.
This is the first book based on interviews with eye witnesses to Area 51 history, which makes it the seminal work on the subject. Filled with formerly classified information that has never been accurately decoded for the public, *Area 51* weaves the mysterious activities of the top-secret base into a gripping narrative, showing that facts are often more fantastic than fiction, especially when the distinction is almost impossible to make. **

Was Skeptical; BUT It Turned Out Great
I was originally VERY skeptical because I’ve seen many sites that write fake reviews about themselves. But I took the risk of $15 and the site turns out to completely legitimate. As soon as my payment info went through, I got a download link and downloaded my book instantly. Definitely impressed by the low price as well considering Amazon had my book ‘Cengage Advantage Books: Introduction to Sociology” listed at $21 for an eBook rental. While now I own the book for only 15. Thanks again Janet and Panther Books team for your assistance and service provided you all definitely helped a graduating senior out.
The prices are unbeatable and customer service is exceptional. I mistakenly purchased the wrong book and immediately was assisted to correct my error.
