Regardless of whether Nephilim, the fallen angels were real, there are still disputes between scientists and numerous researchers. It is interesting that there are a number of ancient texts in which Nephilim are mentioned, and among them is the book of giants, which many consider to be one of the most important ancient texts in which these mysterious creatures are mentioned.
Among the most controversial ancient texts ever discovered in the last century, the book of giants is probably most noteworthy. According to researchers, this ancient text is believed to be based on the Book of Enoch, which is regarded as a pseudepigraphic work dating back to the third century BC.
It is said that thousands of years ago, angels and people freely communicated, which is well documented in the Book of Genesis (6: 1-4).
The Giants’ book talks about the exploits of the giants, about what they did to mankind thousands of years ago. The book focuses specifically on the two children of Shmikhaz, Ohea and Khahya. However, there are many ancient texts that refer to the Nephilim. One of such texts is the Book of Genesis, which undoubtedly describes these mysterious beings, considered by leading scientists, only as mythological beings from the distant history of mankind. Most of the information gathered today comes from the apocryphal Book of Enoch. This ancient work historically refers to Noah’s great-grandfather.
The Book of Giants was published in at least six or seven languages. From the original Syrian, Greek and Middle Persian versions were made. The Sogdian edition probably originated from the Middle Persian, Uighur Sogdian. Perhaps the book existed in Coptic. (A source)
The book of the Giants, which, by the way, is incomplete, offers a different point of view about Nephilim. According to the ancient text, the Giants of Nephilimbekame know that because of their cruel ways they face inevitable destruction. They asked Enoch to say in their name to God:

The Giants begin to worry with a series of dreams and visions. Mahvei, Titan, the son of the angel of Barakel, reports the first of these dreams to his fellow giants. He sees a pillet immersed in water. When it appears, all but the three names are washed away. The dream, obviously, symbolizes the destruction of everything, except for Noah and his sons the flood.
2Q26 [. ,,] They soaked the pill in water. ,,] 2 [. ,,] Water went up the [tablet. ,,] 3 [. They pulled the pill out of the water. ,,]

The Giants realize the futility of fighting the powers of heaven. The first speaker may be Gilgamesh.

Oya tries to escape the consequences of visions. Above, he said that it was only about the demon Azazel; Here he suggests that destruction is only for earthly rulers.

Other dreams hit the giants. The details of this vision are unclear, but that foreshadowed the bad consequences for the giants. Dreamers first speak with monsters, then with giants.
Then two of them had dreams 4 and a dream of their eyes, escaped from them, and they got up and came. ,, And said] his dreams, and said in the congregation [of his comrades] monsters 6 [.

Enoch sends back the tablet with a grim message of judgment, but with the hope of repentance.
