MO41: The Bombshell Before Roswell by Paul Blake Smith, might well be the most exciting, shocking, and impactful event – and now book subject - in not just American history, but all of human history.
Did three extraterrestrials really crash-land their circular spaceship on a farm just outside of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, in mid-April of 1941? Was this stunning recovery then taken to a secret hiding place beneath perhaps the most recognizable building in the world? Was an aspect of the scientifically examined alien craft’s propulsion system applied to the U.S. nuclear weapons program to help win World War II?
The serious, amazing pre-Roswell claims and quotes, rumors and insights, opinions and documented facts are all examined here, in proper chronological, easy-to-read order, the only book to ever comprehensively explore perhaps the wildest nonfiction story of all time.
The results make up a case that could win in a court of law, or at least in the court of public opinion. You, the reader, decide!
Paul Blake Smith was born and raised in MO41’s hometown of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. He is a product of that city’s public school system, and then attended Southeast Missouri State University in Cape, where he was a four-year Mass Communications Major with an English Minor. The grandson of a Cape Girardeau attorney of fifty-plus years - and also a U.S. Commissioner, City Attorney, and community leader – Paul is the son of a local paralegal and an educator who worked in the suspected crash area within neighboring Scott County. A fan of American history and popular culture, Paul now lives and works in a city in the western part of the Show-Me State, writing original screenplays and other books on largely historical, nonfiction subjects – including a follow-up to this original fact-based publication. MO41, The Bombshell Before Roswell is his first published book.
