Top Customer Reviews

I'm ashamed to admit that I got this book because of the cover and the title. It's totally shallow of me, but something tells me that ghost stories from the two World Wars have quite a broad appeal...

This book is essentially a compendium of ghost stories - some written by professionals (such as Paul Stonehill - author of 'The Soviet UFO files' and Dani Marie Argenti - a polysomnographer) and most written by keen amateurs. The stories range from fairly repetitive 'soldiers-ghost-came-to-tell-wife-that-he-was-dead' to a few real gems, including stories about UFO's (Foo Fighters), Ghostly Artillery-Barrages/ Zeppelins, Gremlins AND a secret Nazi city buried under Poland! ('SECRETS OF THE REGENSWURMLAGER'- The best tale of the lot)

Each story has an synopsis at the start, meaning it is easy to search for the best tales without having to re-read them & each story is written by a different person (except one or two).

To give you a flavour of the book, here is a synopsis of four of my favourite tales.
1) THE WHITE CAVALRY: The Germans are at the peak of their powers in 1918 but ghostly visitors ensure that the victory is short-lived.
2) THE SIGN OF THE FLAMING HEATHER: A French aristocratic relative of Robert the Bruce is oppressed by the Nazis but is saved by a strange medieval visitor.
3) U-BOAT 65 FOREVER HAUNTED: A standard Ghost Ship yarn, but with sufficient eeriness to be compelling.
4) WHEN I COULD READ THE FUTURE: A Marine Officer has the gift of Scrying (seeing the future), but only for the duration of WW2.

Many of the stories are themed around curses, ghostly messengers, prophecies etc and I occasionally found tales that were of a type or downright boring (including the last one).
