A nostalgic journey back to the unforgettable songs of World War II, including 23 full-length original recordings of the most popular songs.

Remembering songs from the radio, from dance bands and music halls, from the popular films of the period, and from the ENSA tours that took British entertainers to the troops, this audiobook recaptures the spirit of the World War II years through the music and songs. It includes information about the legendary entertainers of the era, along with 23 full-length original recordings of the songs they made famous.

These songs, moving and inspiring in equal measure, allow a glimpse into a world at war and the heroic effort of the British people that eventually brought victory and peace.

Why were the Russians never mentioned

I felt in many ways this book completely ignored the way the Russians defeated the Nazis and at a cost of 27 million dead. They were on their way to finally defeat Japan so the brave Yanks decided to drop 2 unnecessary atom bombs. The title You must remember this rings false in the rewriting of the WW 2 story as the sole emotional effort of the UK and the US and many of today's young are completely ignorant of Russian sacrifices.

Just wonderful.

This has been such a surprise! It was a bit of a wildcard choice for me as, whilst I am really interested in WW2 history and have read extensively about the period, I had not really given any particular attention to the music of the time. This was entirely my loss and I am very glad I decided to take a punt on this audiobook. The narration is charming and very suited to the period being discussed. The songs are included in their original recordings and are lovely to listen to. I've been listening via my phone whilst I walk the dog and it really puts a spring in your step. I'd thoroughly recommend, I've enjoyed it so much.
