Left at East Gate tells the story of UFO activity at the Bentwaters /
Woodbridge Royal Air Force base in Rendlesham Forest,
England. Author Larry Warren tells the intriguing story
of a UFO landing and possible alien contact during his
tour of duty in 1980. Warren is also the first honorably
discharged person to come forward with news of this
historic event. The book is co-authored with veteran UFO
researcher Peter Robbins.
Back in December of 1980,
Warren was stationed at this royal air base leased by the
USAF from the British Ministry of Defence. On one dark
night, strange lights were seen and Warren and others
were dispatched to investigate. Whether aliens were
sighted that night is still under hot debate.
After the sighting, Warren was sent literally
underground where he may have been "messed
with" by certain members of the military who
threatened him into silence by saying that "bullets
are cheap" if he revealed what he saw to anyone.
After Warren's discharge from the Air Force in 1983,
he decided to prove something really happened that night.
Several years passed before Warren joined up with UFO
researcher Peter Robbins. Together they returned to that
fateful spot and much to their amazement, saw more
strange lights that night, as well.
There is no doubt left in my mind that something of
extreme importance happened there in December 1980.
Initial attempts to cover-up the event were very
successful. But later as witnesses came forward and the
truth leaked out, the cover-up fell apart.
Left at East Gate
By now there is so much evidence in the way of witnesses,
soil samples, and so on, that we the readers are left
wondering: How far will certain members of the government
go to protect their precious secrets? The government says
it is all in the interest of national security. But if
there are no such things as UFOs, then just what are they
trying to protect? This compelling book has the capacity
to make you angry as well as make you think and ask, just
what is going on? The book asks the question of all
readers: How much longer are we going to sit by and let
the government take control?
The book contains an excellent selection of black and
white photographs showing participants of the event, then
and now, as well as photographs showing changes to the
soil, forest, and trees after the UFO sighting and the
mystery storm five months later that scalped the tree
tops. On a scale of 1 to 4 stars, I would give it 3
stars. Book Review by Gary Raymer
