When This Bloody War is Over: Soldiers' Songs of the First World War

by Max Arthur - £13.00  Little, Brown Book Group (Piatkus Books) (2002)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780749923549 | ISBN 10: 0749923547

A heart-rending compilation of the greatest soldiers' songs from the First World War.
 
The haunting songs of the First World War 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. Amidst 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 the First World War.
