5.0 out of 5 stars A piece of history 13 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
Thes original recordings of the time give a real insight into the music hall stars of the war. The songs telling young boys to go and die in the trenches send shivers down your spine. The joy in the 1918 recordings make you feel the relief of Peace at last, and the propaganda speeches by a twenty year old boy soon to die is chilling. Really not to be missed - a piece of history.

Cool to hear those happy songs sung by soldiers who didn't know the real WW 1.
After having experienced that they didn't sing anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric and Evocative! 17 Mar 2014
By Adrian Drew TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A superbly evocative selection of songs from the Great War which perfectly and poignantly capture the pathos behind the comic lyrics. This CD is an important social and emotional record of a terrible moment in world history.
