The Haunting of Hill 60
Hill 60 protected the railway to a German Naval port on the Belgian coast. British Forces had to capture Hill 60 to prevent German submarine domination of Atlantic convoys.
A young village blacksmith had become besotted by a beautiful, strange young girl. Elder relatives took desperate steps to end the evil tryst, severely beating him. Morosely, he joined the Army. Drafted to Passchendaele, the blacksmith was issued with a battle axe to dispatch dying horses.
Possessed by the girl's malign spirit, the axe became a revenge weapon held by her blacksmith manifestation. White of face and eyes so black and hellish huge, he created mayhem in the German trenches. He was haunting Hill 60.
Mornings after the manifestation was seen, guns were silent.
Germans were witnessing headless corpses, believing their guns were haunted by poltergeists.
Events would put the blacksmith soldier's life in severe jeopardy.
