Operation Thunder Child

In this science fiction techno-thriller, former Ministry of Defence employee Nick Pope blends what he knows about political decision-making and war-fighting with knowledge and experience gained on the British Government's UFO project. The result is an alien invasion novel packed with insights into real-world strategy, tactics and hardware, making for a terrifyingly real account. The tagline for this controversial book was "The truth can only be told as fiction", and this led to much speculation in the UFO and conspiracy theory community, especially when it emerged that the manuscript of Operation Thunder Child had needed to go through the government’s security clearance procedure.


"A fast-paced action thriller, incorporating genuine UFO incidents."

Focus, Ministry of Defence in-house magazine
