"Fun and plausible fictionalized account of the famous Roswell incident"
In the summer of 1947, many people claim they witnessed
unidentified flying objects soaring in the proximity of the
White Sands nuclear testing grounds. The crafts show up on
radar. As far as the American military is concerned, the
UFOs perform operations light years ahead of anything the
US Air Force can execute such as almost instant
acceleration and deceleration and on a dime curve maneuvers.
President Truman assumes that the desert show is just that
a clever hoax as he concentrates on the real menace,
Stalin's Soviet Union. However, to ease concern,
especially with an election next year, he assigns General
Curtis to do whatever is necessary. Fire first and damn
the consequences LeMay orders his pilots to shoot down one
of the crafts. Soon luck occurs near Roswell as a
triangular shaped craft with no wings crashes. Four dead
humanoid aliens are inside, but one survived. Truman
orders a full cover-up to prevent a public panic even as
the craft and its occupants are taken to Nevada where LeMay
insures a nuclear weapon remains on stand by alert.
OPERATION ROSWELL is a fun and plausible fictionalized
account of the famous Roswell incident. UFOlogists and the
ET crowd will enjoy this well written action thriller that
uses real people to add to the feel of authenticity. Kevin
Randle may be a believer, but he insures that doubting
Thomas and Thomasina will enjoy the story line yet find the
plot quite feasible, making this a novel for anyone who
relishes the "truth is out there".

Roswell, New Mexico-1947
It is the troubled period just after World War II, and
America has asserted its power across the globe, but
problems still remain. With the ever-present threat of
atomic weapons in enemy hands, the country has begun a race
for military supremacy. Every inch of sky is monitored by
radar, and every eye is open.
The face of America's enemy seemed very clear, until
reports of an unidentified aircraft flying over the New
Mexico desert arrived in Washington. The reports state that
the ship is impossibly light, with the ability to hover in
place, then speed away at more than one thousand miles an
hour-and it looks like no other aircraft the country has
ever seen. While President Truman does his best to maintain
plausible denials, the situation is placed in the hands of
Major General Curtis LeMay, a military zealot whose only
concern is securing America's dominance in the arms race.
When his men shoot the craft down, it becomes obvious that
this was no Russian vessel-and that it may not be from this
planet at all. An examination of the crew proves this to be
all too true . . . and one of them has survived.
As the army rushes to defend the country, as the government
attempts to erase an event from public view, humanity
prepares to witness an event so powerful that it could mean
a change in life as we know it. Nothing you believe will
ever be the same . . .
There are things that we will never know, some things that
can never be revealed . . . events that shape not only a
country but the entire human race. It has been more than
fifty years since eyewitnesses began reporting unidentified
aircraft in the skies without any explanations from
officials. In Operation Roswell, Kevin D. Randle gives us a
look at the behind-the-scenes actions of a desperate
government-and of a situation unlike anything the world has
