Résumé "In 1980, a UFO was tracked on military radar in Rendlesham Forest, England. It landed near two of the most strategically important military bases in NATO, and was approached by military witnesses who touched the hull. This explosive new book--perfect for fans of Annie Jacobsen's Area 51, and Leslie Kean's UFOs--tells the full story of this incident, which is set to become better-known than Roswell. Written by Nick Pope, an international bestselling author and former government UFO investigator, working closely with John Burroughs and Jim Penniston, the two officers at the heart of the encounters, this book reveals the first-hand witnesses' full stories for the first time and is supported by numerous formerly-classified documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. Burroughs and Penniston are well-known in the believer community and are enthusiastic about promoting the book with Pope. An ex-Ministry of Defense official, Pope is the only government UFO investigator to have gone on the record on this subject. He has a huge US media profile as a UFO expert, making him the perfect person to team with Burroughs and Penniston to write and promote this book. The inside story of these events and their aftermath will change people's perceptions about the UFO mystery and about the true role played by government, the military and the intelligence agencies"-- Provided by publisher.
