I must have been about thirteen years old when my dad came home with a record entitled "Battle Stereo". He made me sit down and listen to the sounds of the volleys of cannons, the thunderous charge of cavalry, and also the battle songs of the American Civil war, the Franco-Russian war, and so forth. This is a must-have for anyone who appreciates the history of War, the music of war, or for those who just simply want to feel what it's like to have the charge of the Light Brigade coming through your speakers! Excellent!

like the above reviewer i heard this as a kid i tried to get it on ebay beaten by a german guy ,my daughter got it for me in america which is ironic as i think the conductor is british ,it uses both sides of the speakers as both sides of the war
in the the second world war you have hitler and german music on one side it is drowned out by Churchill ,a great singing of land of hope and glory by a choir because the british won the war same with the american civil war it starts off one side wide with jefferson davis and dixie music but is overtaken by Abraham Lincoln and another great choir singing battle hymn of the republic, as i have said this album is unique Battle Stereo

5.0 out of 5 stars Battle Stereo - A must have CD for all who loves war history 19 Mar. 2001
By Edwin A. Gonzalez F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Battle Stereo is one of the greatest CDs I ever heard. Long time ago, I own this album in the old laquer disc format, and I liked very much when I heard it.
The album consists of a set of epical music, directed by Bob Sharples, which includes begins with The American Revolutionary War, including the March of the British Grenadiers, and the Yankee Doodle.
It is followed by the Napoleonic-Russian War, a great one, in wich you can heard the savage cold wind of the snowy Russian Fields followed by the first contingent of French Army, marching just behind the Drum Corps. The Russian appearence is made after a sonorous courtain of cannon fire, with french army in retreat with the Russian army completing it's advance.
The record also includes:
The the United States Civil War, featuring Dixie and the Battle Hymm of the Republic
The Crimean War, featuring Tchaikovsky's March Slave, Rule of Britannia and Scotland the Brave.
World War I, wich is a music suite including the German National Anthem, Meadowland, The Marcia Reale, Tipperary, Auprés de Ma Blonde and finally National Emblem, where the participants of the "Great War" are portrayed in a stunning and vivid musical portrait.
And Finally, the Battle of Britain, featuring the Horst Wessel Song, in which you can heard the high pitched voice of Adolf Hitler followed by the thundering cheers that accompany the address, with german people singing the "Horst Wessel Song"
Mean while in the right speaker you can hear the wail of a London air attack sirens.
When sound begins to appear in the left speakers you can hear the Lüftwaffe flying over London bombing it, the chimes of the Big Ben and finally the words of Britain Prime Minister Winston Churchill litsening in the background the people singing the "Land of hope and Glory" song, rising and fighting back for their right to remain free.
All this recorded ina a Phase 4 Audio system was the most beautiful way to present this music, because it uses a directional four chanel recording system, wich was the most close audio system in its time to the new Dolby® Surround® System.
Now presented in a Digitally mastered CD format, Litsening it with the new Dolby Surround technology, and of course, the other new audio systems like Dolby Digital, you will found that this CD is itself a true master piece. It sounds really great.
I'm more than happy to give this one a Five Stars rating, because it worhts it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Battle Stereo Revisited 26 Mar. 2013
By Dragon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As an Army officer in 1968, while I was stationed with the Alaskan Command at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, I purchased the LP vinyl disc of Battle Stereo in the Base Exchange. I enjoyed listening to it, and several years later, I gave the disc to one of my sons, and it seems to have "just disappeared". On a long shot, I searched its title on Amazon.com, and I was overjoyed to see that it was available in digital format on a CD. When I received it and played it, I was able to go back all those years in memory of my tour of duty in Alaska, and also relive the emotions that the selections on the recording stimulate. What a great find it was!
