Product Description

The songs presented in this package show very clearly the tone of the writers and released performances that drove the inspiration and the determination that Britain can take it and to keep smiling after being struck by war. It is wondered whether those bringers of war thought along the similar lines when they were devastated themselves. These compositions were not necessarily included in the Hit Parade listings of the time, but rather focused on the reactions in song by the British people. This 3CD Set also includes the most famous speeches made by Sir Winston Churchill on disc 3.
