LoveReading View on The Ghost of the Trenches and Other Stories

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.
