Encounter in Rendlesham Forest

Former Ministry of Defence UFO investigator Nick Pope lifts the lid on a UFO incident that he and colleagues in the MoD regarded as being more significant and compelling than the Roswell incident. The UFO encounters in Rendlesham Forest involved dozens of military personnel based at the twin United States Air Force bases of Bentwaters and Woodbridge.

Previously, only fragments of the story have emerged. Now, Nick Pope has teamed up with the two military officers at the heart of this incident, John Burroughs and Jim Penniston, who for the first time reveal what really happened. Nick Pope uses his unique access to the military witnesses and his inside knowledge of MoD’s UFO project, coupled with never before seen UK and US government documents on the incident, to produce a book that will fundamentally change people’s perceptions about the UFO mystery.

Book Reviews

  • "his questions and detailed evidence certainly give readers on both sides of the UFO debate plenty to chew on. "
    Publishers Weekly
  • "Full of paranoia about the government - not all of it, or even most of it, unwarranted."
    Washington Post
  • "This is probably the most well-documented UFO incident ever. Author Nick Pope had full cooperation from two of the main eye-witnesses and also gathered a lot of previously unseen material through the Freedom of Information Act. This is a well-researched, well-written, fascinating explication of the events."
    San Francisco Book Review
  • "...a well-researched, well-written, fascinating explication of the events."
    City Book Review
  • "This work is a vitally important addition to the growing acceptance of UFO visitations to earth."
    Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Lunar Module pilot
  • "Something very, very strange happened in that forest, and this powerful book shines a clear light into that mystery."
    Whitley Strieber, Author of Communion
  • "[At first I thought] there is nothing new to learn in this book. Boy, was I ever wrong! There was much more to be learned and it is pretty amazing. The book held my attention from the beginning to end. Nick Pope along with John Burroughs and Jim Penniston did an excellent job of presenting this story.  Thank you Thistle Publishing, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  "
