Reviews

"In this eye-opening, thoroughly researched book, bristling with surprising revelations, Keith Chester challenges decades of conventional wisdom about the UFO phenomenon." - Jerome Clark"It's a huge contribution to the field." - Tim Binnall, Binnall of America"I was reading a new book the other day, Strange Company by Keith Chester, and realized a couple of things. First, we're going to have to change the history of the UFO phenomenon. Until this book came out, we all dated the 'modern' era from the Kenneth Arnold sighting of June 24, 1947. It is now clear that the modern era began during the Second World War." - Kevin Randle, A Different Perspective"Strange Company makes clear for the first time, just how frequent the wartime sightings were and the concern they created within Allied military, who seriously feared they could be advanced secret weapons developed by the Axis forces. This gave rise to the persistent myth that foo-fighters were highly advanced flying saucers created by Nazi scientists, whose designs were later captured and developed in secrecy by the Americans. The proponents of this bizarre theory will find little to support their claims in this sensible, sober book which largely sticks to primary source material... Possibly the most intriguing revelation in this book are the results of Keith Chester's inquiries at the US National Archives, which threw up references to a joint US and British foo-fighter investigation later in the war, and a direct link with post-war UFO studies by the intelligence services. Most important of all was the involvement in wartime investigations of Bob Robertson, the US physicist who presided over a scientific panel which reviewed the UFO evidence for the CIA in 1953...A must-read for ufologists of all persuasions." - Dr. David Clarke, Fortean Times"...an extensive, exceptionally documented, and in-depth account of UFOs observed and reported by the military during World War II...Chester has indeed produced a ufological gem." - John Zupansic, Fate"Packed with never-before-seen documentation, witness testimony, and reams of new data, Strange Company is likely to be one of the most talked about UFO books of this year..." - UFO Magazine"As I began reading Strange Company, I wondered whether we would be treated with a series of stories of indistinct lights, which, I confess, was my concept of the foo fighters of World War II...But we read of solid objects with sharply defined edges moving the foo fighters from the realm of ionized air and other natural phenomena into something that is solid and probably extraterrestrial....Chester gives us the documents created at the time by intelligence officers trained in interrogation techniques and whose job it was to understand all that the flight crews were telling them because lives hung in the balance...this book is a unique history of the Second World War...What Strange Company does quite well is move the modern era of the UFO from June 1947 when Kenneth Arnold's report hit the newspaper to World War II. It is clear that these sightings, considered at the time to be classified information and therefore weren't widely discussed, are the beginning of the modern [UFO] era." - Kevin Randle, Journal of Scientific Exploration
