STRANGE COMPANY: Military Encounters with UFOs in WWII
K. Chester, 308+vii pp., 2007, $17.95p

Usually we avoid the never-ending flood of UFO books, but we have
always been puzzled by the so-called "foo fighters" that
mystified World War II pilots in all theaters of combat.  Their
reality is supported in Chester's book by over 100 baffling
sightings by well-trained observers.

Chester's book is thoroughly researched.  There is a strong
foundation of 138 sightings of strange lights and even
"structures" from 1931 to 1945.  Most came from aircraft crews
from *both* sides during the 1939-1945 conflict.  A fascinating
table enhances the textual descriptions by displaying in one
place the incredible variety of unexplained phenomena.  No fewer
than 520 notes give the book even more details, as do photocopies
of official reports and correspondence. All displaying total

SCIENCE FRONTIERS is a bimonthly collection of digests of
scientific anomalies in the current literature. Published by the
Sourcebook Project; P.O. Box 107; Glen Arm, MD 21057.  Annual
subscription: $8.00.
