In 1991, Randle, a retired air force captain, and Schmitt, director of special investigations at the Center for UFO Studies, collaborated on UFO Crash at Roswell. Their current volume is even more convincing than its predecessor. A number of those who gave evidence visited the crash site before it was closed off, and some even picked up pieces of the material from the UFO, which was believed to have landed in 1947, and found it completely unlike any substance made on earth. Equally unsettling was the attitude of the military, which purportedly confiscated everything and threatened everyone (including young children) with death for revealing any details of the incident. Less credible are the descriptions of the ``aliens'' from the spacecraft as close to anthropomorphic. But this book could provoke as much controversy as the first one did.
