Many mansions by Hugh Caswall Tremenheere Dowding Dowding( Book )

11 editions published between 1943 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Lord Dowding, whose name will be remembered in connection with the Battle Of Britain, puts forward a strong case for life after death. The author of Lychgate, The Dark Star and God's Magic presents the subject attractively in a vigorous and fluent style- there are no dreary chapters of analysis, full of meaningless phraseology-the book is written in a clear and concise manner, which can be comprehended and will convince all who read it. Dowding is no sentimentalist; he examines his facts soberly and critically from all angles; his plea for a better understanding of spiritualism will be greeted with enthusiasm by spiritualists all over the world and is bound to be regarded as a valuable asset to the spiritualistic cause. No one can question the deep sincerity with which this work has been carried out. Having in mind the many instances of survival after death on the battlefield recorded through various channels, Lord Dowding has satisfied himself that these records should be made known to the public as widely as possible, believing that they carry with them the hall-mark of truth. In the record of Lord Dowding's career lies the assurance that he is a practical man not likely to be led astray by specious theories, or to harbour delusions when confronted by hard facts
Lychgate by Hugh Caswall Tremenheere Dowding Dowding( Book )

11 editions published between 1945 and 1956 in 3 languages and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 1940 World War II was raging and one of the most prominent men in the UK was Air Chief Marshal Hugh Caswall Tremenheere Dowding - more widely known as Lord Dowding. Dowding was the commander of RAF Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain and is generally credited with playing a crucial role in Britain's air defence, which contributed to the defeat of Hitler's plan to invade Great Britain. What is less well known is, after the Battle of Britain Dowding devoted most of his life to exploring life after death; what we now refer to as psychical research. He authored four books on the subject: "Many Mansions" (1943), "Lychgate" (1945), "The Dark Star" (1951), and "God's Magic" (1960). After the war ended, Dowding was often contacted by mothers and loved ones of the airmen who died on his watch, and when he asked his local vicar how he should respond to their grieving, allegedly, the vicar replied, "Tell them they're with God." Not being content with the vicar's answer, Dowding continued his own investigation in an attempt to find the truth to the age-old question, "what happens after we die?"
