Description:
 Kathryn and John Atwood, the History Singers, perform songs popular during World War II in Honor of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. During World War II, American soldiers marched off to battle, rallied their courage and reflected on life back home through songs. Americans on the home front kept their perspective and solidarity with the troops through music. Radio, records, and even movies were used to stir up and maintain patriotic fervor. The Atwoods perform a good selection of these songs after placing then in their historical context with brief introductions.
