Présentation de l'éditeur
The UFO was seen by dozens of military witnesses, including the Deputy Base Commander. The object fired light beams at some of the men and, later, into the Weapons Storage Area, where some military personnel based there at the time allege that nuclear weapons were kept.
Encounter in Rendlesham Forest tells the extraordinary story of the world’s most compelling and best-evidenced UFO incident – a case that is more significant than the infamous Roswell Incident. Co-written by former UK government UFO investigator Nick Pope, with John Burroughs and Jim Penniston, the two military witnesses at the heart of these encounters, this disturbing and compelling book tells the inside story of what really happened, and lifts the lid on the true role played by government, the military and the intelligence community in relation to the UFO phenomenon.
This controversial new book is largely based on recently declassified government files and is the only UFO book ever to have needed security clearance from both the British and American governments. Encounter in Rendlesham Forest will leave you questioning everything you thought you knew about the UFO mystery.
‘Pope’s questions and detailed evidence certainly give readers on both sides of the UFO debate plenty to chew on.’
‘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 work is a vitally important addition to the growing acceptance of UFO visitations to Earth.'
Edgar Mitchell, Ph.D., Apollo 14 Lunar Module Pilot --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

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. This memo, written by Colonel Charles Halt, the deputy base commander, together with a recording he made, which can be listened to on YouTube, and which are transcribed in Pope's book, provide clear evidence that Halt, and his men, who went out into the forest on the third night, witnessed something very unusual - more lights in the forest, and the sky, which appeared to be craft, under intelligent control, performing incredible high-speed maneuvers, and which shone laser-like beams of light to the ground, and into the weapons storage areas. (Probably housing nuclear weapons.)
Pope can't comment on whether there were nuclear weapons stored at the base, as it would be a breach of The Official Secrets Act if he did, but some brief research quickly reveals that the bases were storing a large quantity of the US's battlefield nuclear warheads, an interesting and worrying fact in and of itself.
Although the story seems to have become embellished over the years, with contradicting accounts as to what happened, the original witness testimonies taken as part of the initial investigation, are perhaps the most interesting aspect. They leave no room for doubt that the witnesses experienced something other than just the flashing light of the Ofordness Lighthouse during the 3 nights of the event. Simply too many individuals saw something they could not explain.
Having devoured Mr Pope's book in a few days, I needed to find more information on the event, and I located a load of information and interviews on YouTube, and even better, downloaded the late Georgina Bruni's book, entitled `You Can't Tell The People.' This book, unlike Mr Pope's, was written back in 2000, and the author carried out meticulous research, and tracked down dozens of witnesses, both military and civilian who all verify different aspects of the sightings. Anyone interested in this story, and who has read Pope's book, will be doing themselves a favour if they also read Bruni's book.
The fact is, 34 years on, the witnesses still maintain that they said they saw back in 1980. To me, it seems incredible if the accounts of these trained military men, who had to remain silent until they left the USAF, were not genuine. Why put yourself through the hassle and ridicule of saying you witnessed such `outlandish' events, if they weren't true? It doesn't make sense.
I'd be astounded if more information doesn't eventually come out on this case, but unless it comes from Colonel Halt, or as yet, some unknown, but verifiable witness, or higher ranking officer who was present at the bases in 1980, then it will be difficult to accept.
So, did an alien craft land in the forest? Or was it a top secret military craft belonging to the good old USA? The secret TR-3B, would be a good contender. Especially as some of the witnesses described seeing what appeared to be something dripping off the craft.. perhaps a problem with the mercury-based plasma drive engine?? Or has a cover-up been orchestrated to hide a sinister accident of some kind? Whatever happened, the case is fascinating, and won't be going away any time soon. I suppose the only comforting fact is that if it was indeed an alien craft, no one was harmed by said aliens - at least not intentionally. If the men were harmed, the harm was more likely caused by fellow humans from the MOD or the USAF!
Another interesting point, mentioned in Georgina Bruni's book, are the strange, ghost-like sightings that have been reported in and around the forest. This article provides more information, and is... very odd - [...]
The truth is out there! Watch this space!
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.
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...
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.
