The Day After Roswell is an American book about extraterrestrial spacecraft and the Roswell UFO incident. It was written by retired United States Army Colonel Philip J. Corso, with help from William J. Birnes, and was published by Pocket Books in 1997. The book claims that an extraterrestrial spacecraft crashed near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 and was recovered by the United States government, who then sought a cover up all evidence of extraterrestrials.
The majority of the book is an account of Colonel Corso's claims that he was assigned to a secret government program that provided some material recovered from crashed spacecraft to private industry (without saying where the items came from) to reverse engineer them for corporate use. The book contends that several aspects of modern technology such as fiber optics and computer chips were developed by using information taken from the craft.
Colonel Corso also claims the world was at "war" with extraterrestrials and that the Strategic Defense Initiative project was part of that campaign that was successfully concluded in Earth's favour.
The book concludes with reproduction of information about Project Horizon a 1950's US Army plan for bases on the Moon

I find his story, even if fluffed up a bit, is rather intriguing. I can't fathom why would anyone with such accomplished career, at the last stage in life, exert himself to orchestrate such seamless fraud.
I would still like to find somebody who had the sense to download all the Corso Sr., unpublished notes that were put up on Corso Jr.'s website for that couple of days before they were taken off
