"There is no way to express how much I have enjoyed this CD. However, I intend to try. As most of John McDermott's recordings seem to have a theme, this one is war and remembrance. Beginning with an instrumental "U.S. Armed Forces Medley" (played annually at the National Memorial Day Celebration in Washington, D.C.), it follows with several World War I and II love songs. Though I wasn't sure about these songs at first, I am now thinking "Roses of Picardy," "Lili Marlene," and "I'll Be Seeing You" were great songs, and nobody could have sung them any better than John McDermott. His "Shenandoah" and "Battle Hymn of Republic" are magnificently sung, and the finale "God Bless America," well, it just touches my heart. There is a reading of "In Flanders Fields" that would make a stone weep. The highlight of the entire CD though, was "The Flowers of the Forest." This one demonstrates to the fullest John McDermott's rich Celtic tenor voice and why I am so overwhelmed by his music. Play this CD every memorial Day and every Veteran's Day, or any other day of the year."

"The heart that is not melted while listening to the pathos of this music is harder than the granite of "The Wall" (sung in memorial for the Vietnam vets). As a history teacher, I use this album to enrich my students. As an American, I enjoy the tributes to heroes. As a music-lover, I say keep giving us more, John. "Lilli Marlene," "Christmas in the Trenches," "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda" portray facets of the World Wars. John's intimate style and soft accent only emphasize the emotion of these pieces."
Beautiful voice, beautiful music.

"I hardly know how to express how I felt the first time I heard this CD and the beautiful voice of John McDermott. He sings sraight from the heart. When you listen to him it is almost as if the things that happened to our servicemen in those wars actually happened to him, that is how much feeling he puts into them. Thank you John for sharing the songs and your beautiful voice with the world."
