    Wilhelm -
    the only two German songs I know of from that period were " Lili Marlene" and Sagbeim abscheid liese servus"

    Dianne -
    Now you have just put me back into Austria in 1945 - when the non fraternisation ban was on - we just happened to be at a local dance when that Sagbiem came up as the last waltz - great times - and peaceful
    Cheers

    Dianne - the Lale Andersen version - then it was turned into the D-Day dodgers refrain
    "look around the mountains in the mud and rain - see the scattered crosses - many with no name.......it goes on.....

    Thanks, that verse gets me every time Tom

    ...
    Heartbreak, and toil and suffering gone
    The lads beneath, they slumber on.
    They are the D-Day Dodgers, who'll stay in Italy.

    The title of my book is the title of a German Naval song - "On a Sailors Grave (No Roses Grow).

    I heard many marching songs during my youth in occupied southwest France.
    The one I remember the most of it's "Erika". The german soldiers from the camp near our house, allways sang that song on their way to the beach of Erromardie.

    German marching songs ?

    I am not normally accustomed to making coarse comments but I hope I will be forgiven if I just say "a lot of bloody good it did them in the long run !"

    As with the photographs of the rather-too-full-of-itself master race when they reached the French coast in 1940, I can't help thinking of the football chant "You only sing when you're winning"
