Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In December 1980, three nights of UFO activity near the Royal Air Force Bentwaters base culminated in what is considered the most significant UFO incident in Great Britain. Left at East Gate is the personal account of Larry Warren, an honorably discharged military eyewitness, and the first to go public about the Bentwaters UFO cover-up. Firsthand accounts from military witnesses are rare and this book is a gem. Serious UFO buffs won't want to miss it.

Format: Paperback
Warren and Robbins raise a lot of questions in this narrative of Larry Warren's experiences at R.A.F. Bentwaters base in late 1980. Reading this book leaves you feeling no doubt that something of extreme importance happened to at least twenty military policeman at the base over the course of three nights. There were local witnesses from outside the base also who observed strange light anomalies in the area during those nights. What really happened at Bentwaters? We don't know exactly but something related to UFOs occurred there leaving indelible, bizarre memories in the witnesses.

Reading this book makes you sympathize with experiencers like Warren who have nowhere to go to share their experiences. They are subject to ridicule, psychological stress, and threats from the military and government black operations. Surely, we as a society can do better than the type of treatment Warren received. After all, when he went out to that remote clearing in the woods that fateful night, along with his comrades, he was doing his job which was to protect the base, one of the largest storehouses of U.S. nuclear weapons in Europe.

This is the most complete book on the Bentwaters case and vividly demonstrates the need for us to get to the truth about UFO phenomenon. The book is somewhat rambling at times but covers every aspect of Warren's encounter in detail. Coauthor Peter Robbins adds a voice of credulity to the whole affair. Overall, this book will inform you, make you mad, and leave you curious and wondering how large our universe really is and who inhabits it with us.

Larry and I went to school together. We were close in Junior high, but drifted apart when he went into the military. He had mentioned the Bentwaters thing, but never went into too much detail. I knew a lot of guys who went in the military relatively sane and came out messed up. After reading his book, I was left with a fascinating insight as to what he went through these past years. Regardless of how you feel about UFO's or the government, you should read this book. Have patience, read the whole thing. Then try to figure out why the rest of us just sit around and let things like this happen while a certain very few contend with all the whacko's out there to attempt to open the public's eyes. Sorry Larry, the rest of the world prefers to stay sleeping.

Well written and interesting throughout. I was working in the WSA at Bentwaters on D Flight during the UFO sightings. I remember the radio transmissions and most of the people working during that time. Warren and Robbins clarify what were only rumours during the those strange nights following Christmas, 1980. Since reading the book, I've contacted several former D Flight members and encouraged them to buy 'Left at East Gate'.

Whether you believe Larry Warren's account of events surrounding the Bentwaters indcidents or not, this book makes for interesting reading.
According to Larry, he's had contact with ETs since he was a child. Bentwaters was just another example. But what an example. This book deals with the before, during and after of an incident that occurred around Christmas 1980, when a UFO supposedly crashed in Rendelsham forest next to a US airbase containing nuclear weapons. The UFO and entities contained therein were observed at close quarters by a number of American servicemen, Larry being one of them.
This book is, of course, just the version given by one person and thus, cannot be taken as a definitive account. Indeed, as other reviewers have pointed out, Larry was interviewed by Georgina Bruni for her book on the subject and she found herself frustrated by his ever-changing account of events.
Whilst it's true that something strange went on in Rendelsham forest on Christmas 1980, it may be a long time before we find out the whole truth. This book, though, may give you an idea of what went on.

Coauthor Peter Robbins sums it up nicely in the last three sentences of the book. "This story is far from over. In fact, it's just beginning to get interesting. Believe it, my friend." And with that the book quits, it doesn't end, it just quits. In fact it quits before the end several times. Like when Bud Hopkins is regressing Larry Warren about his abduction to an underground base. The book talks a lot in several places about this experience, and when the reader gets to the regression and thinks, "now, I'm going to find out the truth," Larry says he doesn't like this and wants to get out of this mode. So Hopkins brings him back and says they'll go further another time, which of course they don't.

Lieutenant Colonel Charles I. Halt claims to have a different version of Warren's service records which indicated Warren wasn't even on the base at the time of the incident. After numerous telephone conversations they go to all the trouble to set up a meeting with Halt in Washington, DC, to show Halt Warren's copies of his service record, and then never ask Halt to see the version of Warren's service records that he had received from his government inquiries. This seemed inexcusable for a serious investigation to me. Close to the end of the book Robbins offers a weak excuse for not pinning Halt down.

Regarding contributions to the book, Warren was the person who had the experience in Rendlesham Forest. Robbins is an investigator and a writer. Both authors contribute chapters to the book; Robbins' contribution is all printed in italics making it somewhat difficult to read. The two writers at times give two views of the same event.
