Project 1947: A Preliminary Report on the 1947 UFO Sighting Wave (including special reports on Sweden and Scandinavia, Finland, France and Australia) adds to the list of significant historical studies.
While interest in Roswell has brought the year 1947 into popular conversation, the true extent of the 1947 UFO wave is not generally appreciated. This current compilation sponsored by the UFO Research Coalition surveys the extensive UFO reports documented in newspapers and other publications worldwide during 1947.
As part of an ongoing research project, nothing so comprehensive has been available since the groundbreaking studies by Ted Bloecher and Loren Gross — studies which are now out of print and difficult to find. Since the Bloecher study, data now available include Project Blue Book and Project Sign microfilm files, Air Force HQ Intelligence files, FBI UFO files, Project Second Story files from the Canadian Department of National Defense, U.S. Army Intelligence Command files, and UFO reports from the Swedish Military Archives. These sources and intensive surveys of over 5000 newspapers offer an extraordinary look into the UFO mystery as it dramatically unfolded in 1947. Perfect bound, illustrated, 200+ pp.
