First Sentence
WHEN I BEGAN CONDUCTING RESEARCH INTO THE CRASH of an alien spacecraft somewhere in the United Kingdom during World War Two, not for one moment did I expect that I would ultimately become embroiled in an investigation that encompassed the deaths of the actress Marilyn Monroe and US President John F. Kennedy. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars The UK has an Area 51 23 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The first of the many UFO books I have read which looks at the equivalent of Area 51 issues in the UK. The issues are so far fetched they must be true - for Marilyn Monroe and JFK to be killed for what they knew and intended to do about the UFO presence. As to the UK, why has no one started to discover the ultra secret investigations and preparations for announcing the facts to the public before. Apart from the annoying Americanisms in the language of the text, this is a most thought provoking book which brings the subject right into the heart of the UK - Go and read.

4.0 out of 5 stars UFO WRITING AT ITS BEST 8 Sep 2000
Format:Hardcover
This book is the third book written by Mr Redfern and is certainly up to the high standards of his earlier work.
Focusing on Britain,this is well documented and very interesting. Highlighting potential Alien Crashes on our fair isle it is a refreshing change to the overload on Roswell and more higher profile cases.
Highly Recommended

1.0 out of 5 stars Inconclusive and Irrelevant 21 Aug 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
After reading this book, it is clear that the author Nicolas Redfern has spent a lot of time doing research for it by taking eyewitness accounts, riffling through documents recently declassified as part of various countries' Freedom of Information laws and subsequently writing this book. That is as far as this publication can be commended.
The problem with this book is that it neither satisfies the skeptic or the believer.
The book makes claims of mainly UK military and government involvement in the recovery of crashed or landed UFOs - however, nothing is substantiated here. The author uncovers vague government documents that don't prove anything. The first hand witnesses don't have any evidence to speak of besides their accounts. The strongest "evidence" is usually pure speculation of why the military apparently lied about events. Often the best or most interesting sources of information are hearsay (second-hand interviews from someone else). If you look at the photos in the middle of the book, you don't see anything of importance or proof. There are no photos of scorched landing marks, no pictures of unknown metallic objects and not even a blurry photo of something in the sky.
As far as caterring for the believer, the accounts are very superficial - for whatever reason - and only go so far as accusations about where the crashed UFOs and alien bodies are kept. We don't learn anything new about these aliens or their reason for being here. Subsequently, the accounts are boring, unexciting and unenlightening.
The first chapter are allegations that one of the reasons Marilyn Monroe and JFK were murdered was their desire to spill the beans on the UFO phenomenon. The substantial lack of proof in this chapter sets the tone for the rest of the book.
Overall, I was bored by the lack of depth to the extent of the alleged events disclosed by the author and disgusted by what the author considers quality journalism.

1.0 out of 5 stars ZZZZZZ 8 Jan 2012
By Bookster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I fell asleep five pages into the book. Leave it to the British to make a book about UFOs butt-numbingly boring.
