Thread Name: Songs about World War I
Subject: RE: Songs about World War I
"No Man's Land" was the original title of Eric Bogle's song and it is mentioned in the opening thread.
Niamh Parsons & Graham Dunne's latest CD "The Old Simplicity" features two songs about WW1. John Connolly [John Condon] is the story of an Irish Boy of 14 who lied about his age to join the British army and was killed shortly after arriving on the battlefields. 1917 is the story of a French prostitute and the soldiers who visited her.
