Description :

The outbreak of World War One in 1914 produced a large quantity of patriotic songs. Some of the themes reflected in the lyrics of this genre are personal sacrifices, recruitment and anti-conscription.
The pressure for eligible young men to enlist was enormous and the campaign included music, posters, poetry, letters and pressure from individuals and groups such as the Win the War League.
