True and documented military UFO encounter cases that will surprise and make you question what we really know about alien visits to Earth. For as long as the UFO phenomenon has been a thing, the United States military has consistently denied any knowledge - or even interest - about the subject. But many suspect that Uncle Sam knows a lot more than he’s letting on, and this book explores all the possibilities - from the Roswell crash and Area 51, through foo fighters and rumors of possible reverse-engineered aircraft, all the way to the 2017 disclosure that the Pentagon is still investigating UFOs. Broaching the subject of UFOs typically sparks either great interest or great ridicule, depending on whom you’re talking to. But whatever our individual knee-jerk reaction to the tales may be, one thing that we can all agree on is that there never has been any satisfactory explanation for them. The 2020s seem poised to hold just as much mystery in regard to the subject as the 1950s did. And while there have been plenty of civilian UFO encounters, it is the men and women of our military who most often find themselves on the front line of this great mystery. Most of those who don the uniform are no better prepared for these encounters than anyone else, and they face the additional difficulty of having to report to their superiors in the aftermath of such odd incidents. In documenting these accounts, this book is not seeking to convince anyone of anything. All of these alleged events are left open to the listener's own interpretation. But while you make up your own mind on the subject, here we present to you the fantastic and bizarre claims - as well as the sometimes equally shocking known truths - that comprise the strange anecdotes of military encounters with UFOs. 1.

Of all the US Army posts in the West, none witnessed more history than Fort Laramie, positioned in the northern Great Plains join the Rocky Mountains. From its beginnings as a trading post in 1834 to its abandonment by the army in 1890, it was involved in the buffalo hide trade, overland migrations, Indian wars and treaties, the Utah War, Confederate maneuvering, and the coming of the telegraph and first transcontinental railroad. Douglas C. McChristian has written the first complete history of Fort Laramie, chronicling every critical stage in its existence, including its addition to the National Park System. He draws on an extraordinary array of archival materials — including those at Fort Laramie National Historic Site — to present new data about the fort and new interpretations of historical events. Emphasizing the fort's military history, McChristian documents the army's vital role in ending challenges posed by American Indians to US occupation and settlement of the region, and he expands on the fort's interactions with the many Native peoples of the Central Plains and Rocky Mountains. He provides a particularly lucid description of the infamous Grattan fight of 1854, which initiated a generation of strife between Indians and US soldiers, and he recounts the 1851 Horse Creek and 1868 Fort Laramie treaties. Meticulously researched and gracefully told, this is a long-overdue military history of one of the American West's most venerable historic places. The book is published by University of Oklahoma Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Utley. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/100389/bk_acx0_100389_sample.mp3.

A Scientific Way of War analyzes how the doctrine of military science evolved from teaching specific Napoleonic applications to embracing subjects that were useful for war in North America. Drawing from a wide array of materials, Ian C. Hope refutes earlier charges of a lack of professionalization in the antebellum American army and an overreliance on the teachings of Swiss military theorist Antoine de Jomini. Instead, Hope shows that inculcation in West Point's American military curriculum eventually came to provide the army with an officer corps that shared a common doctrine and common skill in military problem solving. The proliferation of military science ensured that on the eve of the Civil War there existed a distinctly American, and scientific, way of war. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin F Spalding.
