MATT SWAYNE: Haunted World War II - Soldier Spirits, Ghost Planes & Strange Synchronicities

On this episode of THE Q.PSIENCE PROJECT, Penn State research writer MATT SWAYNE returns to the show to discuss his new book, Haunted World War II: Soldier Spirits, Ghost Planes & Strange Synchronicities, lending a critical eye to the European and Pacific theaters as well as historic locations in the US where the spirits of the dead are unable—or unwilling—to let the past go.

From accounts of wizards and witches in England casting spells to hold the Germans at bay, Dion Fortune and the Fraternity of the Inner Light working magic in support of the Allies, and Aleister Crowley waging a psychic campaign to capture high-ranking Nazi, Rudolf Hess, this book offers a journalistic window into the high strangeness and haunted aftermath of the most devastating clash of nations in living history.
