There have been a large number of supernatural occurrences reported around war, with some famous examples such as the angels of Mons. Hundreds of soldiers from both sides reported seeing angels above the German line. The reports made headlines, and many believed the angels to have been spirits of English bowmen killed at Agincourt.
It was not uncommon for soldiers to report sightings of the patron saints of their countries during battle, and many an Englishman has claimed to have seen Saint George riding a white charger. Similarly, French soldiers often claim to see Joan of Arc.
