We have come across some insights concerning miracles and angelic appearances, connected with National Prayer at the time of the two World Wars. written by Dr Victor Pearce, who died in 2010.
They include an account concerning the ‘Angels of Mons’, who during WWI turned the victory in a battle over to a hopelessly outgunned British Army. Also details of no less than seven national calls to prayer in World War II, with an indication of their effect.
