Ghosts of War is where history and mystery meet.
Phantom U.S. Civil War regiments still march through Harpers Ferry, West
Virginia before vanishing into the evening sunset.
The beaches of Normandy, France still echo with the cries of the men who gave
their lives storming the beaches on D-Day.
The disembodied clip-clop of horse’s hooves and the clank of swords from the
British Civil War battle of January 25, 1644 are still heard in Nantwich, Cheshire.
Wherever battles were fought and people perished, ghost legends have
Ghosts can be found wherever tragedy left its mark. Where men’s and women’s
lives ended so quickly that their spirits may not even realize that they’re dead.
Where soldiers, focused on duty, still patrol the front lines of long-finished wars.
The world’s battlefields are imprinted with the passions, fears, and horrors of the
soldiers who took their enemies’ lives and often sacrificed their own. Battlefields
are still rife with spirit activity, centuries after the last cannon was fired and the
last casualty lost.
Ghosts of War is a history book told through the eyes of witnesses who have
experienced the ghosts who still haunt these locations. Featuring nearly two
dozen battlefields from around the world and throughout the centuries, each
chapter includes first-hand accounts of the battle (where available), important
facts and dates, historic and ghostly photos of the site, and first-hand ghost
sightings and supernatural experiences that still occur.
