It’s 2014. In July of this year we’ll be commemorating the centenary of the outbreak of World War I, “The War To End All Wars”.
This song – “Reflections” – is one of several I’ve written over time about the Great War. It appears on the “Edge Of The Dark” CD / download, released by Angel Air Records back in 2009.
The “Haig” mentioned in the lyric is Field-Marshal Douglas Haig.
Haig commanded the British forces during the
of the Somme and the casualties he was
prepared to accept earned him the nickname, “Butcher” Haig.
