Ghosts of War Examines the Battlefields, Boats, and Planes Where the Spirits of Soldiers Refuse to Let History Die

Jeff Belanger’s new book explores the haunted history of warfare throughout the centuries from battles waged around the globe. Historians, ghost hunters, and eyewitnesses weigh in on the events that sparked the legends.

BELLINGHAM, MASSACHUSETTS, September 18, 2006 -- Wherever tragedy and battle have left their mark, in places where men’s and women’s lives ended in the flash of a musket or in the roar of a bomb’s explosion, ghosts will stir. Jeff Belanger’s latest book, Ghosts of War: Restless Spirits of Soldiers, Spies, and Saboteurs explores the battle sites, the military vessels, and the other locations where modern ghost sightings are occurring.

“You can’t explore the ghost phenomenon without also taking a close look at history,” said Jeff Belanger, author of Ghosts of War. “Only when we understand the context of where and when our fallen soldiers fought and died can we know the importance of these hallowed sites. These battles have left an impression that can never be washed away or covered up—the ghosts of war will never allow us to forget.”

Ghosts of War explores the history, legends, and modern-day ghost sightings from more than a dozen wars from around the world over the last millennium. Dan-no-Ura in Japan, the British Civil War, the American Civil War, World Wars I and II, and even modern military conflicts such as the Bosnian War in the mid-1990s, all have their share of supernatural activity, even after the echoes of the last shots fired in these battles drifted away long ago.

In Gettysburg some have witnessed phantom regiments march across Devil’s Den; in Shropshire, England, a World War II-era Lincoln Bomber still echoes the sounds of the mechanic who once worked on the airplane; in Bosnia one United States solider lit a cigarette for a Bosnian soldier only to watch him disappear – the list of supernatural activity around military sites goes on and on. Ghosts of War takes these ghost encounters a step further and also explores the theories as to what ghosts are and why some people are experiencing them more than others.

“The tales of the battles alone make Ghosts of War a most worthwhile addition to any military history buff’s library, but the ghosts add extra spice,” said William Weir, author of 50 Battles That Changed the World.

"History is not dead and gone. Using Belanger's concise information, you may be able to personally experience 'the'past' yourself. Do not approach these hallowed grounds lightly," added Joshua P. Warren, author of How to Hunt Ghosts and President of L.E.M.U.R. Paranormal Investigations.

Belanger is also the author of: The World’s Most Haunted Places, Communicating With the Dead, Encyclopedia of Haunted Places, The Nightmare Encyclopedia, and Our Haunted Lives. He’s been a guest on hundreds of radio programs around the world and has been featured on television programs covering the paranormal.
