Maury Island UFO: The Crisman Conspiracy
From the Publisher:
“It happened at Maury Island: In 1947 six flying saucers circled above the harbor boat in Puget Sound, near Tacoma, Washington, one wobbling and spewing stag. The falling junk killed a dog and burned a boy’s arm. His father Harold Dahl witnessed it all. The Maury Island incident became the first UFO event of the modern era. Then came Fred Crisman. He was one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of covert intelligence. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Burma, was wounded by a laser before it was invented and had a background with the OSS. Harold Dahl told him about the Maury Island UFO. The next day Crisman witnessed another single saucer…or did he? In 1968 New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison identified Crisman as one of the mystery tramps in the rail yard at Dealy Plaza. Garrison called him an industrial spy, steeped in the anti-Castro Cuban underground, who may have been one of the assassins who killed JFK. Long dismissed as a fraud and a hoax, the Maury Island case has never been fully examined until now. It collects an enormous amount of data from government files, oral history, interviews, intelligence agency reports and privately held correspondence.”
