The soldier in song from the English Civil War to The Falklands. Many's the song about enlisting, and the glory of the fight - but these are joined here by those about the mud, the guts, the disillusionment and the despair.
Not just pretty old songs about muskets and cockades, swordsmen and battle chargers, but the stark reality of current loss of life in Ireland, and the ridiculous atrocities of the Falklands War.
Gunners, light horsemen, female drummers, foul sergeants, conscription and present-day insanities. Three hundred years and more of soldiering songs sung to appropriately stark accompaniment.
