The first, comprehensive military history of armed confrontations between humans and extraterrestrials • Includes documentation of incidents from World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and the ongoing hostilities in the Middle East • Reveals the U.S. Navy´s defeat in Antarctica by ETs, the shoot-down of ´´flying saucers´´ at Roswell, alien sabotage of nuclear weapons, in-flight abductions of USAF and Soviet officers, and photographic evidence of the Battle of Los Angeles • Explains the link between the development of atomic bombs and ballistic missiles and the increase in extraterrestrial intervention in the 20th century Although close encounters with alien space craft are reported as far back as the reign of Pharaoh Thutmosis III in Egypt, it wasn´t until the 20th century that UFO sightings and extraterrestrial encounters were truly documented, due to advances in technology and record-keeping as well as the vast increase in incidents, particularly with military forces. Revealing his extensive research and the verifiable evidence he´s discovered, Frank Joseph presents a comprehensive military history of armed confrontations between humans and extraterrestrials in the 20th and 21st centuries. He explains how, with the development of atomic bombs and ballistic missiles, the frequency of extraterrestrial intervention in human affairs increased dramatically. He documents incidents both famous and little known, including the explosive demolition of U.S. munitions factories in 1916 by unearthly aerial vehicles, the Red Baron´s dogfight with a UFO during World War I, ´´foo fighter´´ sightings and battles with Allied and Axis combatants during World War II, and eye-witness reports from encounters during the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War in Iraq, and the ongoing hostilities in the Middle East. He examines the evidence for the shoot-down of ´´flying saucers´´ at Roswell and Aztec, New Mexico, alien sabotage of nuclear weapons systems, and in-flight abductions of USAF and Soviet officers and airplanes. He explores the photo evidence for the Battle of Los Angeles, which occurred three months after Pearl Harbor, and the details of Operation Highjump, the U.S. Navy´s defeat in Antarctica by ET forces 17 months after the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, while also uncovering evidence of secret Antarctic German bases. The author also examines recent, 21st-century examples of alien interdiction in Earthly affairs, such as the meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan and the fiery abort of Elon Musk´s Falcon 9 missile launch, both events accompanied by UFOs. Offering complete disclosure of the multitude of ET events over the past century, Frank Joseph gives us the first true reference book in the field of alien military encounters.

Excerpt from International Law Situations, With Solutions and Notes, 1938 The introduction of aircraft as a means of warfare greatly modified the conduct of war upon the earth surface, on the water as well as on land. The earlier rules for warfare were concerned with surface combat. These rules could not in every instance be extended by analogy to aerial warfare, be cause the forms of warfare were not analogous. There was an attempt on the part of some writers to extend the three mile maritime jurisdiction doctrine to the superjacent air. In this attempt the early recognition of the fact that the law of gravity did not act horizontally and vertically in the same manner, destroyed the analogy. Differences in Speed and in other respects introduced other complications in attempts to extend maritime and land rules to the air. Aircraft were coming more and more to be used in war; therefore, rules had to be devised. The World War expe riences and problems contributed valuable basal data for the determination of the nature of possible regulation of use of aircraft. The equipment of aircraft with radio introduced other problems. (international Law Situations, 1936, p. Can legal´ restraints on air warfare be made 2´ The feeling has been prevalent in some quarters that efiorts to curb the use of aircraft in war are doomed to. Failure because this new weapon is so powerful that no belligerent would be willing to restrict the employment of this military arm. The devastation and destruction which airplanes may bring about, so the argument runs, will be so efiec tive in bringing the opponent to terms that here after the sanctions for restraint will no longer be operative. Further, the. Possibilities of totali tarian wars between rival ideological groups makes it appear to some people that curbs would be of no value. This hypothesis that ruthlessness will pay and that legal restrictions will be foot less, deserves examination.

How We Decide
€ 22.99 *

The first book to use the unexpected discoveries of neuroscience to help us make the best decisions Since Plato, philosophers have described the decision-making process as either rational or emotional: we carefully deliberate, or we ´´blink´´ and go with our gut. But as scientists break open the mind´s black box with the latest tools of neuroscience, they´re discovering that this is not how the mind works. Our best decisions are a finely tuned blend of both feeling and reason - and the precise mix depends on the situation. When buying a house, for example, it´s best to let our unconscious mull over the many variables. But when we´re picking a stock, intuition often leads us astray. The trick is to determine when to use the different parts of the brain, and to do this, we need to think harder (and smarter) about how we think. Jonah Lehrer arms us with the tools we need, drawing on cutting-edge research as well as the real-world experiences of a wide range of ´´deciders´´ - from airplane pilots and hedge fund investors to serial killers and poker players. Lehrer shows how people are taking advantage of the new science to make better television shows, win more football games, and improve military intelligence. His goal is to answer two questions that are of interest to just about anyone, from CEOs to firefighters: How does the human mind make decisions? And how can we make those decisions better?
