All of the songs on this CD Became popular in the early 1940s when the world was at war and most of the men had left home to do their patriotic duty. This fact is reflected in the nature of the songs, a highly romantisied version of yearning which is hard to imagine unless you have been separated from loved ones and do not know if you will ever see them again. The songs are performed by some of the most popular singers of the day including: The Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, Vera Lynn, Hutch, Judy Garland, Issy Bonn and Anne Shelton and the CD features thirteen number one best sellers the rest also attaining chart positions some just pipped at the post by attaining the number two position.
