Newly Released

Flying Saucers Over the White House

A biography of Edward J. Ruppelt, a man the government didn't
want you to know

Do aliens exist?

It's one of the big questions of our lifetimes and was already
answered in the 1950s by Edward J. Ruppelt, when he stated:

"We found out that UFOs frequently visited Washington. ...fifty
targets had been tracked from 8:00PM till midnight."

Edward J. Ruppelt was not just an ordinary citizen. He was a
U.S. Army Air Force officer and the first person connected with
the U.S. government to seriously research the subject of
extraterrestrial life. The U.S. government appointed him to lead
"Project Blue Book" in the early 1950s, which was the official
U.S. Air Force investigation into the UFO phenomenon.

British author and UFO researcher Colin Bennett wrote Flying
Saucers Over the White House, a unique biography about Ruppelt,
which is for the first time being released in the U.S.by Cosimo

In this biography, Bennett not only describes Ruppelt's life as
a military man and UFO investigator, but examines his UFO
findings, the military industrial complex surrounding his
research and the subsequent alleged military cover-up of his

This biography is indispensable reading for UFO fans, anyone
interested in the fascinating life of Edward J. Ruppelt, and
citizens who want to understand how governments can initiate
investigations but suppress the implications when the results
are unfavorable. Now sixty years since Ruppelt's research, as we
are still left wondering whether aliens exist, Bennett has given
those interested in UFOs an opportunity to discover ufology
through the eyes of the man who started it all.

The work of Colin Bennett, including Flying Saucers over the
White House, has received wide praise from various corners:
"While Ruppelt and his world belong to the past, the demons of
Bennett's [Flying Saucers Over the White House] are still with
us=97as you are about to discover." --from the Introduction, by
Nick Pope, UFO Desk Office, UK Ministry of Defence, 1991 - 1994

"Colin Bennett's purpose in writing the book is to present
Edward Ruppelt's information to a newer, more open generation -
to let it decide what it wants to believe... This is a must read
for anyone interested in the origins of UFOs, or in the reaction
of the government toward what has become a respectable area of
study." --Todd Rutherford, 'Publishing Guru', 2011
