Area 51: What REALLY Goes On At This Top Secret Military Installation (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

AREA 51 sits inside of the largest government-controlled land parcel in the United States, the Nevada Test and Training Range. It's a little smaller than Connecticut, three times the size of Rhode Island, and more than twice the size of Delaware. It is the most famous military installation in the world and the most secret. Everything that goes on at Area 51 is a black operation, and most of what goes on at the Nevada Test and Training Range is classified. These operations take place in the name of national security and they all involve cutting-edge science. "AREA 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base" is the first book based on recently declassified documents and interviews with firsthand eyewitnesses to base history--seventy-four individuals linked to the secret base, thirty-two of whom lived and served the base proudly and secretly for extended periods of time.
