Recruiting Songs

Read by Bruce Kachuk

(4.8 stars; 4 reviews)

This rousing collection of poems is sure to bring out patriotic sentiments in us all. These works were written with the glories of victory in mind - victory based on dignity and basic human rights for all. The strident call to arms expressed here can't help but stir the soul and inspire the imagination with thoughts of a vanquished enemy and the triumph of a defender of truth and liberty.

The concept of hope, as elusive as it may be amid the field of battle, is always an asset when possessed by those in combat. This hope, this aspiration of a brighter future accompanied by a strident call to join the war effort is so aptly portrayed by poet Temple Scott. Here are a series of awe-inspiring songs of the splendor of victory, the anguish of defeat and, ultimately, the appeal to a higher power for guidance - in the words of Scott, "Though tempest-tossed and battle-scarred, we still aspire Thy way to tread".
