Frightening Paranormal War Secrets We Can’t Explain

In the annals of history, rarely do historians include frightening paranormal war secrets. It’s basically fringe history. And, I’m not going to lie to you, this stuff can be pretty out there. Why else would you be here though, right?

We all know history is full of ghost stories and legends, and that doesn’t exclude military and war history. It’s rife with bizarre and supernatural events. As you’ll soon discover, during battles, many soldiers have claimed to witness ghosts in the trenches and UFO’s in the sky. While that in itself is scary, the fact it can’t be explained makes it even more so.

On top of all that, modern governments have initiated secret paranormal missions and projects under the noses of the average citizen. Whether it be Nazi or CIA science experiments, many countries have gone to strange, and frankly, horrific lengths to acquire power over their enemies. Just be warned, some of this stuff isn’t for the faint-hearted. Here are Frightening Paranormal War Secrets We Can’t Explain.

Similarly, it’s been claimed that Hitler himself wanted another ancient relic, the Lance of Destiny, or the spear that pierced Christ’s side during his crucifixion. He believed the spear would give him power to overcome his enemies and rule the world. Hitler did get his hand on the object, but it clearly didn’t help him conquer the world.


The Diplomat Hotel


Once called the The Dominican Hill Retreat House where nuns and priests resided during World War II, it was turned into a prison camp by Japanese soldiers at the time. The soldiers forced the nuns and priests to do slave labor and even went as far as raping, torturing, and beheading them. There were also claims of a child massacre. Afterward, many strange sightings of ghosts and hauntings came out, including hearing the sounds of children and babies crying. Eventually, the hotel was shut down, and it’s now a derelict building.
