Subject: RE: Songs about World War I
Oh! Frenchy was written in 1918, it is an English music hall type song that is light hearted and patriotic. It has been transcribed from a wax cylinder recording by the Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project of the University of Southern california at Santa Barbara, a great source for music of this era.
If you have an interest in reading about WWI, I would like to recommend a book titled "Three Day Road" by Joseph Boyden, a historical novel that is largely set in the trenches of France.
