If you ignore the book's title and read it as a satire on the state of international affairs during the early days of the Cold War, this is a great little novel. If you read it with the expectations of everything the term "Flying Saucer" means today, more than 60 years after the book was written, you're likely to be disappointed.

Was recommended the book by the authors of "Mirage Men". A story written in 1950 that describes the world's top scientists hatching a plot to unit the Earth by creating a fake invaison from Mars. Full of 1950's goodness, interesting and very original story.
