This book discusses WWI-era music in a historical context, explaining music's importance at home and abroad during WWI as well as examining what music was being sung, played, and danced to during the years prior to America's involvement in the Great War.


• Provides an excellent resource for students investigating music during the First World War as well as for adults interested in WWI-era history or music of the pre-twenties

• Documents the variety of reasons songs were sung by soldiers in wartime―to cheer themselves up, boost courage, poke fun at or stimulate hatred of their enemies, or express grievances or protest against the war or against authority

• Covers stage music of the WWI era, including music hall (British), vaudeville, revues, operettas, and musicals
