Music Since the First World War by Arnold Whittall and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at This book looks at the role of popular music in constructing the myth of the First World War. Since the late s over 1, popular songs from more than forty countries have been recorded that draw inspiration from the War. National Myth and the First World War in Modern Popular Music takes.   The First World War is now remembered through its literature perhaps more than any other art form; we are all familiar with the traditional canon of war poets, including Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen. However, we are considerably less familiar with the response of classical musicians to the war, both during and after the conflict. It also helped to usher in the ideas that have shaped our times--modernism in the arts, new approaches to psychology and medicine, radical thoughts about economics and society--and in so doing shattered the faith in rationalism and liberalism that had prevailed in Europe since the Enlightenment. With The First World War, John Keegan, one of our Reviews:
