David Marler - The Battle of LA: The 75th Anniversary
One of the most dramatic events in UFO history occurred five years before the flying saucer wave of 1947. At least one genuine unidentified flying object was sighted visually by thousands of witnesses; tracked on radar; photographed by a member of the press; and fire upon repeatedly by elements of the United States military. Ample documentation exists regarding this event in the form of newspapers and government documents. Despite the explanations of the time attributing this event to "jittery war nerves" or "Japanese Planes," a comprehensive retrospective analysis can now bed made that suggests an alternate explanation. Armed with new insights concerning the photographic evidence as well as correlating eyewitness' testimony with press material from the time, a detailed account becomes clear. David Marler weaves all of this material together to take you back 75 years to what is perhaps the first well-documented UFO event of the 20th century.
