Chester reveals that as the war gripped the world for six years, military personnel reported seeing numerous highly unconventional aircraft in all theaters of operation. These objects had extraordinary flight performance capabilities, came in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, and were able to travel at extraordinary speeds and avoid radar detection. The author recounts the reactions by military commands, their viewpoints, and theories as they struggled to make sense of the observations. A scientific panel convened by the CIA eight years after the war admitted that these unconventional objects were of unknown origin.In this eye-opening, thoroughly researched book, bristling with surprising revelations, writes UFO historian Jerome Clark in the foreword to the book, Keith Chester challenges decades of conventional wisdom about the UFO phenomenon.Its time to drop the pretense that UFOs were a rare sight before 1947, when pilot Kenneth Arnold witnessed nine flying saucers over Washington State. While Arnolds sighting is regarded by many as the beginning of the UFO phenomenon, Strange Company illustrates just how pervasive the phenomenon was years earlier--before, during, and after World War II. What this work suggests, says author Keith Chester, is that while an immense twentieth century war was raging on Earth, someone, or something, from somewhere else, was watching us.
