Format: Paperback
This book (along with one or two others) has had a profound influence on my view of UFOs. It starts off by examining some of the stranger UFO cases, and goes on to show that the beings inside UFOs are not aliens from outer space, but something different entirely.
Well written, thought provoking, and humorous, this is a book you simply must read!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Caius Axim on 9 Oct. 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
When I first began to research and write about "alien" aerospace and underwater craft, aliens, and their activities I was lucky enough to discover this important work by chance, in a second-hand bookshop. It is very helpful for researchers and analysts that it has now been made available as a professionally-produced, electronically-searchable, Kindle book.

Mr. Keel's accurate references to particular historical newspapers, names, dates, places, and events made it much easier for me to do my own research, especially now that so many old newspapers have been made available online, including on free-to-view websites such as "Chronicling America" of the US Library of Congress. For example, I was able to research the reports of the alien aerospace craft that simulated "airships" in the US in 1896 and 1897 (and the encounters people reported with aliens that masqueraded as the airships' inventors, crews, or passengers).

I was also able to research Mr. Tillinghast, a US manufacturer who was evidently used by aliens as an unwitting "front man" for a campaign of disinformation spread via daily newspapers during late 1909 that involved flights by their simulated "aircraft". I was able to see for myself the similarities pointed out by Mr. Keel, with the way aliens had earlier used their legal representatives and other people they encountered or sought out, to spread disinformation about their aerospace craft disguised as airships via US daily newspapers in late 1896 and during 1897.

Our online access to increasing numbers of historical newspapers in searchable archives enables us to do original research on the foundations provided by Mr. Keel, for example, discovering a later newspaper article (New York Tribune, Wednesday, July 13, 1910, Volume LXX No.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
New Yorker John Keel, who died in July 2009 aged 79, was a prolific writer on the paranormal and related subjects. His best-known work was `The Mothman Prophecies' in which Keel himself claimed to have been the victim of malign paranormal forces (such as mutilated pets and strange phone calls) whilst investigating reported sightings of an alleged supernatural winged humanoid creature in West Virginia.

Keel's `Operation Trojan Horse' was published in 1970. Alongside Jacques Vallee's contemporaneous `Passport to Magonia' and `The Invisible College' this book has become a kind of bible for those who choose to force UFO sightings into a traditional paranormal landscape containing fairies, ghosts, demonology, poltergeists and Marian apparitions, rather than see them as evidence of extraterrestrial visitation. Long out of print, OTH has seen a welcome 2013 paperback reprint from good ol' Anomalist Books so if you have an interest in this subject (and if you still like old fashioned books with paper pages) you can now buy yourself a brand new copy.

Reading OTH is a slog; many readers admit to skimming page after page of UFO sighting reports stacked end to end as Keel labours his point that UFOs must be somehow `interdimensional' or supernatural rather than composed of real physical objects:

"The statistical data...indicate that flying saucers are not stable machines. They are transmogrifications of energy and do not exist in the same way that this book exists. They are not permanent constructions of matter" (p195)

Despite a confident - and often tediously pompous - writing style, Keel's beliefs do not add up to a credible theory about the origin of UFOs.
