A wide ranging and useful collection of WW1 songs, with the parody versions of many too, and as featured in the excellent film "Oh What a Lovely War".. transporting you from the knock about of the Edwardian Music Hall.. through the songs intended to help recruit."Your King and Your Country"..and ."I'll Make a Man of Any one of You!".. to the trenches.. and marching and singing to keep spirits up and mask the horror..
The book has song/tune line and piano accompaniment.

Beautifully presented album containing many of the songs peculiar to presenting the stage play on the amateur stage with clear harmonisation.
