“The Braxton County Monster”

Frank C. Feschino, Jr., the authority of the “Braxton County Monster” incident has returned with an Updated and Expanded version of his 2012 book. His ongoing and diligent 21-year investigation into this case reveals an invasion of gigantic aliens that occurred over America on September 12, 1952. Feschino meticulously reconstructed a timeline of events and recreated the scenario of that terrifying day, which includes the “Flatwoods Monster” and “Frametown Monster” incidents, a massive wave of UFO sightings and crashes and the cover-up of a USAF jet fighter that disappeared that night. This book contains new documentation about the “Braxton County Monster” case and startling UFO events of that day and includes additional witness information, newly discovered sightings, crashes, landings and more. It contains more than 225 visuals, including new articles, photos, maps, graphics and illustrations, which credit Feschino as the world’s most thorough investigator of this UFO incident in history.
