Five Books, Five Songs: We’ll Meet Again

“We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where,
Don’t know when …”

The FitzOsbornes at War is about saying goodbye, so the song I’ve chosen today is Vera Lynn singing one of the most famous (and saddest) songs of the Second World War, We’ll Meet Again.

  1. Vera Lynn singing this song runs through my head all the time. I have it on my WWII playlist on my IPod along with a list of humourous WWII songs like Who’s this Geezer Hitler and Blitzkrieg Baby. And can you believe, Vera Lynn born 1917 is still alive.
