The songs collected in two CDs reflect the feelings and ideas of the Anglo-Saxon public of the time. Little known and insufficiently discussed, that of the popular song pro-belicist period 14-18. These songs of Johnnies and Tommies mix the fresh joy, the pain, the jokes against the German formality, the loves and the hardness of the life of the trenches.

Vol2.25 chansons 77:00

Набор песен, собранных на двух компакт-дисках, отражает чувства и идеи англосаксонской публики того времени. Малоизвестная и недостаточно обсуждаемая, популярная песня про-белицистского периода 14-18. Эти песни Джонни и Томми смешивают свежую радость, боль, шутки против немецкой формальности, любовь и жесткость жизни окопов.
