ANGELS IN THE TRENCHES - Leo Ruickbies psycho-analysis about how Western Spiritualism turned into 'Survivalism' (Book Review)


The First World War had a massive impact onto the supernatural beliefs of Western Society...

 ‘Angels in the trenches’ is historian, sociologist and Paranormal Reviews Editor Leo Ruickbies newest achievement after his 2016 well acclaimed ‘The impossible Zoo’.
‘Angels in the trenches’ is definitely different from what any average reader of a book about the later European heydays of Spiritualism might expect. Ruickbie refuses to regurgitate any already previously presented simple landmark-facts of the spiritualism-movement like we all have read about enough before, like about the famous mediums and séances, the Dialectical Society, Crookes with Home and Cooke, the SPR, Richets ‘ectoplasm’, Conan Doyle and Houdini...
https://www.amazon.de/Angels-Trenches-Spiritualism-Superstition-Supernatural/dp/1472139593/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1544180199&sr=8-1&keywords=angels+in+the+trenches

No, Ruickbies standards and requirements lay clearly beyond the well-known and already exhaustively discussed.
What he is presenting in his new work is not less than a particular dissection of the continents recent past, facilitated with the hand of a master surgeon, namely of the WWI years and its societal sensitivities - mainly but not only of the British - and how these did interrelate and interfere with the most influential spiritual movement ever having occurred in Western Society: Modern Spiritualism!
Therefore Ruickbie digs deep and presents to the reader with an insight and overview only the diligent historian has contemporary historical materials from different publications and correspondences rendering the change in society’s perception from the age of enlightenment into a state of willingly accepting or even purposefully seeking for the supernatural.


At the time maybe not even worth a short remark in the news-section, informations among many, in retrospective indeed the very moments that impacted the collective unconscious sustainably and enduringly, uniquely presented in this collection of relatively short episodes.
The books chapters are short, sometimes changing with the next page and so sending the reader onto a specifically determined curvaceous ride into the past.
It is Ruickbies psycho-analysis scrutinizing how step by step Western Spirituality started - suffering under the terror of WWI and experiencing personal loss of loved ones into the millions - to circle more or less solely around the question of and proof for Survival - and not let’s say rather ‘classically‘ exploring the path to epiphany and enlightenment.

Angels in the Trenches is hence a thorough, dense and intensive, oftentimes surprising read, revealing many never before interrelated facts underlying an important younger section in the metaphysical evolution of mankind and its western perspective.
They today restrict western spirituality by evaluating its efforts exclusively if addressing the quest for the proof of survival. Conditions that many do believe deserve a critical review ….

The book is therefore a clear recommendation!

I have been casting spells for many years and I have helped many people, I might be able to help you too. I am honest, and I genuinely care for all the clients who choose me to cast a spell for them.


If you have any questions about Love, Money, curse, protection, bad luck, divorce, court cases, or about me please call or email me. I really want you to feel comfortable before moving forward with any spells, or other services. I will take the time to explain things to you and provide you with honest advice, to what is best for your situation.

I perform my Rituals only at night between the hours of 0.00 - 0.59 (South African time) lasting 1 hour but of course, this depends on the nature of the ritual, some rituals might take hours and can also become necessary to be performed at specials places like; flowing streams, cemeteries and other places dictated by the gods.
I do not want anyone to be under any illusions about my spells and its numerous rituals. Real and effective Voodoo is no child's play, it is expensive because, after the rituals, I will have to destroy all the materials involved by fire and the ashes scattered over a flowing stream or river.
You will get what you seek.But please understand this might take a lot of time and that individual results may vary. contact +27663492930, greatogudugu@gmail.com

I've been reading some interesting stories on line about how some broken relationships were repaired by some magical powerful spell casters i thought it was all lies not until i had similar issues on my relationship with my husband whom i have been married to for the past 7 years and we have been blessed with two kids,i was surprised when he came home with another woman informing me that he is tired of me for no reason i tried to ask him what is the problem my words fell on deaf ears i have to move out because i cannot bear the pain of seeing another woman on the same roof with me, i was devastated and heart broken throughout these period i have to inform my friend about my experience she told me not to worry that my man will be back to me i was wondering how is this going to be possible she told me she;s going to introduce me to one Prophet Jacob Douglas who is a very powerful spell caster,at first i was having some doubts on my mind because i do not believe in things like this i contacted the spell caster and he told me what to do,and i obliged and did what he asked me to do, he also told me it is a done deal that i should not worry that my husband will call or message me and plead for forgiveness in the next 72 hours to my greatest surprise my husband called me the next day and started crying that i should forgive him, that he was not with his right senses up till this moment i am still surprised for this great miracle that has happened in my life i and my husband and our 2 kids are back together and we are more than happy as ever before if anyone is experiencing such problem in your relationship you can contact this great spell caster on ultimatesolutionspellcaster@gmail.com or Whatsapp him on +2348050676586
