RECRUITING SONGS 





A [IBRIVOX FREE AUDIOBOOK 
READ BY BRUCE KACHUK 


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".
