Area 51: an uncensored history of America's top secret military base by Annie Jacobsen

Cover image History & military buffs should absolutely love this book! It is packed with not just information about Area 51 (which was what I personally wanted to know about!) but also everything from Los Alamos to the Roswell "incident" to the Cold War and Cuban Missle Crisis to today's declassification of sensitive documents. You really need to be one of those guys from The Big Bang Theory to understand much of this, but once you get passed all the physics it is quite fascinating!

  1. I have always been interested in the lore of Area 51 and found myself clinging to each word, pondering the possibilities. Never again will I naively gaze into the starlit sky and feel that we, the human beings living on the planet earth, are the only beings in the solar system. Every shooting star or out of the ordinary sight makes me wonder..
