A superb analysis of a possible alien invasion!
on 1 September 2001
When the MoD's 'UFO officer' starts writing these sorts of books, the world should take note. Pope follows up his success with 'Open Skies, Closed Minds', with this work of fiction, postulating an alien invasion of Earth, and the human resistance to that attack. Pope skillfully seeks to give the reader an insight into what would occur behind closed doors, as alien saucers intrude into UK airspace, shooting down Eurofighters in a second 'Battle of Britain', and Grays kidnap citizens. As governmental and military officials begin to reluctantly accept the truth, and the US Government betrays the UK in its time of need, the reader cannot put this book down. The sequel, Operation Lightning Strike, is just as good.
