A good documentation of the history of the UFO phenomenon leading up to Rendlesham Forest, but it lacked substance!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Encounter in Rendlesham Forest: The Inside Story of the World's Best-Documented UFO Incident (Hardcover)
I thought this was a very well researched, organised and written book. I was especially impressed with the research of historic UFO cases and the official documentary evidence. I think the Rendlesham case is a particularly interesting one, especially because of the rank and professional status of those involved. I also think the evidence was very fairly looked at by Nick Pope and the overall linking to the UFO phenomenon and how officialdom has treated this subject was carefully covered. I was however a little disappointed with how little of the actual Rendlesham incident itself was covered in the book, and felt that it was more of a documentation of the history of the UFO phenomenon itself according to Mr.Pope, which although very interesting, did not really focus on the case per se.
I would have liked to have seen more from other witnesses that were at the bases over the time in question. I would have liked to have heard about the evidence and what was discovered; the transcript of the tape was included of the investigation in the woods, but not the conclusions of what they found, the readings of radiation, the effects on the plants and wildlife, damage to the area etc. Also the relevance of the nuclear facilities at the bases! I am also very interested in the binary code - I think more should have been discussed about this.
However it is a very important book to read if you are seriously interested in the UFO phenomenon as it does cover a lot of very serious points about how governments and the various military and official agencies treat the phenomenon as a whole. I hope this book will lead to a more open discussion by the British and American governments on this subject and that society will see how much deception and covert manipulation of evidence there is.

To conclude, it is probably the worst expressed exposé that I've ever had to endure. And the ending , the revelation of the contents of the binary code, is banal in the extreme. What a damp squid. All that way to travel and such a waste of effort in telling a low ranking US military man something like that. My gut feel is that the craft was a drone as revealed in http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/ciencia

Hmmm, so the pyramids in Egypt have been carbon-dated, eh....... Carbon dating requires the material to be of organic origin. How do you carbon date something made entirely from stone??

Whilst the cladding stones were tight-fitting, those behind them were rough-hewn, and the bigger of the spaces between them were filled with organic material. Hence the accurate carbon-dating.
