The Yanks Are Coming
  • Brighton Fringe

This is the fourth show in the series 'Lions Led By Asses' using poetry, song and facts. We shall look at the aftermath of the Somme and Verdun, and facts leading to the US entry in to the war. We will look at 1917 and the Battles of Ypres and Passchendaele, and life on the home front. We shall sing the usual chorus songs and popular songs of 1917 by Irving Berlin and George M. Cohan and poems by Owen, Sassoon, Robert Graves, Rudyard Kipling and many others.
