The haunting songs of World War I still have a powerful emotional impact. These are the funny, bitter, sad, and romantic words the soldiers actually sang on the march, in the dug-outs and trenches. Amid the appalling carnage of the battlefield, the stoic courage and endurance of the ordinary soldiers shines through in songs like "No More Soldiering for Me" and "It’s a Long, Long Way to Tipperary." This attractive and evocative book cannot fail to delight and move anyone with an interest in World War I.
