Subject: RE: Songs about the Great War
I read recently that when they went back they arrived in a new country that ostracised them for "fighting for England". Not the first nor the last servicemen to find public attitudes very different at the end of a war from at the start.
Possibly, of course, it was even more prominent in the new nations formed out of the Austro-Hungarian empire?
