- Alan C. Wood
15th October 2010
Following several personal sightings of ghosts, including that of a First World War pilot, Alan Wood has spent sixty years researching the occult. Military Ghosts is the result and is designed as a gazetteer of locations where military ghosts have been reported. It includes not only such well known legends as that of Sir Francis Drake's Drum, but a wide variety of stories, ranging from a patrol of ghostly Roman legionnaires to a fully fledged re-enactment of the Battle of Edgehill, from benevolent spirits to one so terrifying that witnesses have committed suicide rather than face it, through to the spirits of seventeenth-century cavaliers and the more modern ghosts of fighter pilots from the First and Second World Wars. This book covers soldiers, sailors and airmen, and a wide range of locations not only in the UK but also overseas.
