Description
 

The songs of the First World War represent the ascendancy of the human spirit over the cruel inhumanity of the war itself - from the Introduction by Lyn Macdonald The haunting songs of the First World War still have a powerful emotional impact. These are the words the soldiers actually sang - by turns funny, cynical, bawdy, angry, wistful - amidst the appalling carnage of the battlefield. The stoic courage and bitter humour of the ordinary soldiers shine through such songs as We are Fred Karno? Army , Hanging on the Old Barbed Wire and It? a Long, Long Way to Tipperary . Each song is introduced by Max Arthur, giving its historical background. Together with contemporary cartoons and drawings, this attractive, evocative book cannot fail to delight and move anyone with an interest in the First World War.
