Is there a single intelligent force behind all religious, occult, and UFO phenomena? Strange manifestations have haunted humans since prehistoric times. Beams of light, voices from the heavens, the 'little people,' gods and devils, ghosts and monsters, and UFOs, have all had a prominent place in our history and legends. Are we pawns in a celestial game? What if all our destinies are controlled by a cosmic force for its own mysterious purposes? And what if UFOs and other paranormal manifestations are merely tools being used to manipulate us and guide us toward the cosmic role we are fated to play? In this work, the author explores these phenomena, and reveals the truth about our present position and future destiny in the cosmic scheme of things.--From back cover

John A. Keel (March 25, 1930 - July 3, 2009) was an American journalist and influential UFOlogist best known as the author of "The Mothman Prophecies." In the 1950s, he spent time in Egypt, India, and the Himalayas investigating snake charming cults, the Indian rope trick, and the legendary Yeti, an adventure that culminated in the publication of his first book, "Jadoo." In the mid-1960s, he took up investigating UFOs and assorted forteana and published his first knockout UFO book, "UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse," in 1970. The book shredded the then trendy nuts-and-bolts extraterrestrial hypothesis for UFOs in favor of one that linked UFOs to a variety of paranormal and supernatural phenomena that have taken place throughout history. Keel was one of the first to note that the UFO phenomenon appears in different disguises-and that one could not begin to decipher this great mystery without first taking into account its many and varied deliberate deceptions. Other than a few corrections, this Anomalist Books edition essentially follows the original 1970 edition of "UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse."

Operation Trojan Horse : the classic breakthrough study of UFOs by John A Keel( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The real UFO story must encompass all of the many manifestations being observed. It is a story of ghosts and phantoms and strange mental aberrations; of an invisible world that surrounds us and occasionally engulfs us; of prophets and prophecies, and gods and demons. It is a world of illusion and hallucination where the unreal seems very real, and where reality itself is distorted by strange forces which can seemingly manipulate space, time, and physical matter-forces that are almost entirely beyond our powers of comprehension.

Victime d'une panne de voiture alors qu'il roule la nuit, le journaliste John Klein réalise qu'il se trouve à des heures de route de l'endroit où il croyait être. Point Pleasant, la petite ville de Virginie où il a échoué, est le théâtre de phénomènes insolites, qui semblent tous reliés aux apparitions inexpliquées d'un terrifiant individu dont la silhouette évoque un papillon de nuit. Or, deux ans auparavant, l'épouse de John est morte dans des circonstances bizarres après avoir aperçu une créature du même genre. En menant son enquête avec la policière Connie Parker, le journaliste devient convaincu que tous ces phénomènes sont annonciateurs d'une terrible tragédie pour les habitants de Point Pleasant
