I am not aware of any good links for the "floating mystery balls" or 'foo fighters.' Aside from the work of Josef Andreas Epp, who claims to have built circular aircraft, there is little other source material. My research indicates that this new 'secret weapon,' which has no given offensive capability, was a balloon harassment 'weapon' for use against Allied night-fighters. Balloons can be picked up on radar and would represent false targets.

Apologetics aside, is a foo fighter a naive sighting of a real, historical weapon? No, it is absolutely not. Is it a Nazi flying saucer or an extraterrestrial spaceship? I'm afraid not, but these theories sell magazines and make lots of bucks. Many Ufologists have been very receptive to my refutation of the "jet" hypothysis because it tends to support their own claims of alien visitors. My intentions from the outset have been to resolve this mystery using a rational, although unorthodox, scientific method. It is my stern belief that what these airmen were reporting was an intensely real set of illusory experiences which have become associated with disorientation-vertigo syndromes in night flying. Perhaps one of the most steadfast reasons that Allied intelligence services were so baffled by these "encounters" was due to the fact that no studies existed at the time concerning vertigo, especially when night flying was involved.

Doesn't mention "foo fighter" but here's a short video about a veteran of the unit that first reported sightings of them:
