Operation Lightning Strike
Nick Pope

Operation Lightning Strike

This is the sequel to Operation Thunder Child. Ministry of Defence official Nick Pope writes about alien invasion from the perspective of having run the British Government's UFO project. In terms of doctrine, tactics, military hardware and politico-military decision-making, this book gives as realistic an account as is possible of how any alien invasion might actually unfold.

As with the prequel, this book had to be vetted formally by the government and has attracted interest from production companies eager to make a movie or a TV series based on the book.
