    I enjoyed this book It was interesting reading the different songs that were sung during WWI There were crude songs which made me laugh , uplifting songs and sober songs All of the songs spoke of truth and the sober ones rang of truth then the others You can tell by the songs that the men were able to keep their moral up in the most depression of times The preface and intro were especially interesting and gave a brief idea of the world these men came from The only two things I wished there was in the book was background information about the songs and the actual music Although some of the tunes I did not know to play them in my head the words read like poetry which is fine by me I also really liked they fact that the book had pictures and illustrations from the era.
