The Philadelphia Experiment — Project Invisibility - Charles Berlitz; William Moore;

Souvenir Press, 1979, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little faded at the spine and slightly ruffled at the edges.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Did a top secret U.S. Navy experiment in 1943 really succeed in making a newly built destroyer invisible? Or even — as some versions of this extraordinary tale have it — disappear altogether from its berth in Philadelphia and reappear only minutes later in Norfolk, Virginia? This is the story that has been kept alive for thirty-five years, although never properly verified. And if so spectacular a result was actually achieved at the height of World War Two, why was the project apparently abandoned and erased from the official records?
