Still struggling through this...

It's good, but requires a lot of concentration.

Just finished this...

An absolutely conclusive rebuttal of negationist/"revisionist" arguments. Possibly the best book I have ever read; I raced through it in 3 days.

I got this book in the 80s and re-read it every several years:
Image

The next compendium in the series is almost as good, so I've only read it a couple times:
Image

Since that one was not quite as good as the first, it has taken me many years to make it to the third series:
Image

But, I'm reading that one now and noticed that the word "plooking" was used on the third from last line down:

My unsolicited suggestion as a follow-up. Read this a little over 20 years ago. 2 volumes.

"Maus" is excellent, too, of course.

Quote:
Antartica, 1912, and the Australian Mawson and two other men set out across King George Land. They find themselves in treacherous terrain, and one vanishes into a crevasse, along with dogs, a sledge, and most of the food. Then the second man dies of starvation and dysentery. Blizzards rage for days, a week. Mawson endures. Mawson lives. A fine read that has not quite gotten the attention it deserves.

I read this about a month ago and these researchers have revived a solid crash retrieval from a scandalous and effective attempt effort to label it a hoax, well researched it is a tough read when your working with facts and defusing a decades old whitewash but now resurrected we may get a lot more info on this event... :arrow:

Image

Just read this another excellent book by the team that took the Roswell crash retrieval from rumor to fact, they have deflated all the balloons the government have tried to use to cover this one up.... :arrow:


Image

Just started this one which comes as a nice surprise, we have Roswell for sure, Aztec is looking real good, now this 1941 Missouri crash...this will be much harder to prove but I will give them a chance, but so far it seems something happened there... :arrow:

My dad always said there were 3 Crash retrievals and I could never figure where that 3rd one was it the time frame he was involved with these events but now we have a good candidate!!!
