Join Conversation Crossroad radio show hosts Betty-Lynn White and Garrison Leykam for their interview with Annie Jacobsen, author of AREA 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base. 

Annie Jacobsen's seminal and news-breaking AREA 51:An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base is the first book based upon recently declassified documents and, perhaps more important, on 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. Jacobsen reveals for the first time what really goes on in the Nevada desert, from testing nuclear reactions to building super-secret supersonic jets to pursuing the War on Terror. Filled with formerly classified information that has never been accurately decoded for the public before, AREA 51:An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base weaves the mysterious activities of the top-secret base into a gripping narrative, showing that facts are often more fantastic than fiction, especially when the distinction is almost impossible to make.
 
Annie Jacobsen is a contributing editor at the Los Angeles Times Magazine and an investigative reporter whose work has also appeared in the National Review and the Dallas Morning News. Her two-part series "The Road to Area 51" in the Los Angeles Times Magazine broke online reader records and remained the "most popular/most emailed" story for ten consecutive days.
