"Then I went back to the files. And the harder I looked, the more my amazement grew. Something very strange was going on. And clearly, I wasn't the first in the Ministry of Defense to think so".

Booklist Review

If Pope is correct, Earth is currently in the middle of an interplanetary war. He claims that while he was stationed at the "UFO Desk" of Britain's Ministry of Defense, he studied UFO sightings as well as crop circles and cattle mutilations--all of which led him to the conclusion that the aliens are here, and they aren't friendly. He believes it is time the British government and the world in general rally to confront the invaders. The author openly compares himself to Fox Mulder of TV's X-Files in his struggles to bring forth the hidden evidence of the security danger to planet Earth. This work, which originally was published in England and was a best-seller there, is one for the true believers. Although numerous incidents are cited, actual evidence is lacking, and logic is often absent from the author's arguments. Nevertheless, the topic is perennially popular, and Pope's belief in UFOs will attract attention. --Eric Robbins
