“Selected by Extraterrestrials: My Life in the Top Secret World of UFOs, Think-Tanks, and Nordic Secretaries” by William Mills Tompkins is a captivating and controversial memoir that offers a firsthand account of the author’s involvement in the secret world of military aerospace programs and alleged extraterrestrial contact.
The book covers Tompkins’ life from childhood to his involvement with the Navy’s secret research programs during World War II and beyond. Tompkins claims to have worked closely with several high-ranking military officials and aerospace engineers, including Wernher von Braun, and to have been privy to classified information about extraterrestrial beings and their advanced technology.
One of the strengths of the book is the author’s detailed descriptions of the technology and the secret projects he worked on. He offers a fascinating look at the inner workings of the military-industrial complex and provides a compelling case for the existence of extraterrestrial life and its involvement in human affairs.
However, the book is not without its controversies. Tompkins’ claims have been met with skepticism by some in the UFO community, and some have accused him of embellishing his story or even outright fabrication.
Despite these criticisms, “Selected by Extraterrestrials” is a gripping and entertaining read that will appeal to anyone interested in the intersection of ufology and government secrecy. The author’s insider perspective and detailed descriptions of the secret projects he worked on make it a unique and valuable contribution to the field of UFO research.
