Ghost Stories of the First World War
ISBN: 1551059118 Global Overview for this book
1 journaler for this copy...
I don't do especially well with ghost stories (I get scared really easily), and I have several books of them to read at the moment, but this one is Priority #1 right now. We're coming up on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, so I am trying to read some WW1 books that I have around.
I don't have specific plans for releasing this one yet, but I still have to read it first, anyway!
One thing that surprised me about this book was that some of the stories weren't about ghosts but other paranormal phenomena. That's not of great importance to me really, I just wasn't expecting it. I also noticed a factual error that bothered me-- Lusitania was not one of Titanic's sister ships. Titanic's sisters were RMS Olympic and HMHS Britannic; Lusitania's sisters were RMS Mauretania and RMS Aquitania. That seems like a super easy thing to fact check, so while it's a little thing, it really bothered me that they got it wrong and-- between two authors, an editor, etc-- the error made it into print.
