Editorial Reviews

Review

[Pope's] questions and detailed evidence certainly give readers on both sides of the UFO debate plenty to chew on (Publishers Weekly)

Read this book and you will be convinced that we are not alone in the Cosmos. It will open your mind to 'the broader reality' that holds so much promise if we only embrace it positively. (Paul T. Hellyer, Former Defence Minister of Canada)

This is a well-researched, well-written, fascinating explication of the events (San Francisco Book Review)

I'd heard about the RF incident - dubbed Britain's Roswell - some time ago, and recall finding it fascinating at the time. I was, and still am fascinated by UFOs, and always interested to hear about knew sightings and facts. I was only 15 years old when this story broke, but do recall the headline in the News of the World. But, like with most UFO stories, as time passes, and no more information comes out, you sub consciously file the story away, and it loses its importance and significance.

Nick Pope's new book, co-written with Jim Penniston and John Burroughs, two of the primary witnesses, breathes new life into the events that occurred that December night in 1980. The two airmen were the first to out that night to investigate the strange lights seen over Rendlesham Forest, which lies between the then twin USAF bases, Bentwaters and Woodbridge, in Suffolk, England. Upon reading Mr Pope's new book, my interest in the event has now been more than re-kindled, excuse the pun!

This book is well written, and sets out the timeline of the events in digestible bits of information, together with additional facts and testimony that has come out since the event. The book is written with the help of the two primary witnesses, Jim Penniston and John Borroughs.

The important thing about this case has got to be the sheer number of trained military personnel who witnessed the events over the 3 nights, together with some photographic evidence, radar evidence, and radiation readings taken at the alleged landing site, after the initial event. The now famous Halt memo, released by the USAF, under the Freedom of Information Act in 1983, led to the story being broken by the News of the World back in the same year.

I have been waiting for this book for around 2-3 years now. This is when a presentation 'revealing all' was supposed to be held. In the meantime I have listened to the authors hint on huge revelations to come out once the book is published...

As a book - its good - a factual overview of the events that happened in Rendelsham forrest. Very detailed account. In some aspects a bit too detailed. And while it is an excellent overview of the event - the most detailed up to now - ultimately it does not deliver anything new. So if you are looking for another factual account of the event (and we had a few already) - you will be very happy with this book.

The problem is that the authors of the book have overhyped expectations over the years. Not to mention the incredible secrecy they maintained while hinting with titbits of information on revelations to come and teasing the general public - while at the same time giving promises that 'all will be revealed in the book'. For the reader expecting something new about the case, or some revelations - look elsewhere. You will not find them in the book. There is nothing new. A huge disappointment considering the promises made, and the amount of time it took for the book to come out.

But hold on. They ended the book with - "Is there more to come? Yes, there is more to come." So lets all wait a few more years while they write another book and in the meantime keep us in suspense with 'hints' of new information that cant be revealed until the new book is ready for sale in 2017...

As a former USAF Security Policeman who was on duty during this incident, although not involved, I've often wondered what the facts were regarding those fateful nights, now I know! This book is a riveting straight forward account of events and the various reactions by both US and British authorities. No fanfare, no embellishment, no artistic license just fascinating facts that equal, if not rival the Fiction genre. Truth can be stranger than fiction.

I am a confirmed UFO skeptic and have been all my life. As I've gotten older, though I've become more open minded, to include the idea that there is almost certainly other life in the universe. Still, I remain a skeptic with regard to sightings, abductions, etc. To that end, I tend to only consider the most "verifiable" sources when analyzing the UFO/alien phenomenon. Among the sources I feel lend credibility to any serious research are astronauts, scientists, and other professionals who deal with our airspace and space itself.

Personally, as a former senior intelligence officer myself, I consider this incident to be one of the most pivotal events in the history of UFO research. Given that Nick Pope also served in a similar capacity, and was also a strong UFO skeptic at one time, I do seek out his articles, talks, and books as credible additions to my research. This book is no exception and I strongly recommend it for any serious UFO researcher who requires as much evidence as possible. And this is certainly the definitive account of this event.

I have followed the Rendlesham Forest event very closely for many years. Nick Pope, in my opinion has always been a very proficient and honest researcher, and his work in this book is of a high standard.

The book contains much new material and in particular, provides new details from two of the most important participants in the whole affair, which to say the least are extremely enigmatic. It would seem that there is much more to be told about this whole story. .Let us all pray that this is not going to be the last we hear of this very important and potentially life changing event.PLEASE keep researching for the truth Nick.
