Though I left the MoD in 2006, my security oath is binding for life, and there are certain areas (e.g. nuclear issues and intelligence matters) where it’s safest not to comment.
In Operation Lightning Strike, the limited battles in the previous book give way to all-out war, with the fate of Earth hanging in the balance. As with Operation Thunder Child, the book needed official clearance. So far as Nick Pope is aware, this is unique in the history of science fiction.
There seems to be a lot of problems with ATS giving 503 and 504 errors right now so he may be having trouble accessing the site. downforeveryoneorjustme.com told me ATS was down for a few mins.
Its all a bit spooky maybe TPTB are listening in more than usual lol.
