The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a collection that brings together folk tales, legends and ghost stories that grew up around the First World War. Fascinating, moving, sometimes scary, these are the stories told by soldiers and the people they left behind, on both sides of the conflict from the haunted U-boat to the ghosts of the trenches.
The author has also written a superb novel set during World War Two called One Day in Oradour which tells the story of a young boy whose village is wiped out by the Germans and only he survives.
The Ghost of the Trenches and Other Stories by Taffy Thomas, Helen Watts
As the Great War raged, and in its aftermath, people created hundreds of legends and stories round it, to speak of the sadness, the heroism, the deaths.
