Amazon Review

At a charity party, investigative writer Georgina Bruni asks Mrs Thatcher what she thinks of UFOs. "UFOs?" says the aging baroness, "You must get your facts right, and you can't tell the people." Hence the title of this new book on the Rendlesham Forest mystery.

One night in December 1980, two USAF patrolmen reported seeing strange lights in Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk, between the twin USAF bases at RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge. Three more US servicemen were sent to investigate. They reported seeing "a strange glowing object... metallic in appearance and triangular in shape." The following day more USAF personnel, including the deputy base commander, found three depressions in the ground and later observed strange lights in the sky.

Was this the clearest evidence ever of UFO activity in Britain, or was it just another case of misconception and delusion? Whatever the case, the resulting silence from both the USAF and Britain's Ministry of Defence has led to the Rendlesham incident being labeled "Britain's Roswell". Twenty years later, Georgina Bruni tries to piece together the facts of the story.

Bruni says, despite all probable difficulties in the investigation that, "based on all the evidence, it seems obvious that there is a continuing cover-up to hide the details of the Rendlesham Forest incident." As always with this sort of book, what conclusions you draw tends to depend on what beliefs you arrive at the scene with. Clearly, however, You Can't Tell the People is a terse and rather thorough introduction to this unsolved mystery, and certainly worth reading for anyone with an interest in UFOs and the unusual. --David V Barrett

Review

'While twenty years have passed, she brings new light to this story that just won't go away...' Major General Gordon E. Williams, USAF (Retired)

Product Description

This is the casebook of the world's only officially recognized UFO encounter that took place in the UK in December 1980. Previous accounts of the Rendlesham Forest incident have been flawed: people with axes to grind and little access to primary sources and discreditable single eyewitness accounts. Georgina Bruni has had access to police, Ministry of Defence and US military sources and her casebook reveals fresh information on the incident and the possible alien encounter that ensued. It includes interviews with those involved as well as other never-before-reported incidents in the area. The casebook also reveals details of the aftermath and the harsh treatment meted out to those who wavered from the "don't ask, don't tell" line of officialdom. 'While twenty years have passed, she brings new light to this story that just won't go away...' Major General Gordon E. Williams, USAF (Retired)

From the Author

You Can't Tell The People by Georgina Bruni
‘UFOs? You must get your facts right, and you can’t tell the people.’ This is what Margaret Thatcher said to me in May 1997

In the height of the Cold War, RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge in Suffolk, England, was leased to the United States Air Force (USAF), serving as a twin NATO military installation. During Christmas week 1980 the Woodbridge base was visited by several UFOs, two of which actually landed on the perimeter of the base in Rendlesham Forest. Numerous air force personnel witnessed these events and so extraordinary were they that it prompted Squadron Leader Donald Moreland, the British liaison officer to instruct Lieutenant Charles Halt, the deputy base commander to write an official memorandum to the Ministry of Defence. For three years the USAF and MOD denied the incident, but in 1983 an American research group managed to obtain the memorandum through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

You Can’t Tell The People produces a mass of new information on this famous case which has never been published before. Witnesses claim they were interrogated by special agents and threatened into silence. I produce a covering letter (which supported the memorandum) written by Squadron Leader Donald Moreland and addressed to the MOD, which is entitled "Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOS)". This is supported with an exclusive interview with Moreland. I also examine documents that claim to be official typed witness statements taken at the time of the initial incident and intricate drawings of the UFOs and the landing sites that the witnesses made following the incident in 1980. Official USAF photographs taken the morning after the initial incident which show a British police officer and a USAF officer examining three ground indentations, each with a marker. I also located a firsthand copy of an original audio tape recording of the second major event. The tape revealed vital new information. A local civilian witness speaks out about his encounter with one of the UFOs and tells how four of his USAF friends were called back to the base on a "Red Alert". The witness also described what one of his friends had told him about the incident in the forest, which involved an encounter with a "space ship". He never saw any of his friends again. You Can’t Tell The People also produces interviews with the former AFOSI deputy commander and his wife who also witnessed the UFO. I have interviewed more than one hundred people who have assisted with my enquiries. Many of those who were involved in the events have never talked before, including Major General Gordon Williams, the commander of the installations; several high-ranking officers; NCOs and regular airmen; police and MOD employees and civilians. And there is much more...…
