ANZAC Day - April 25

In 1972, at the height of the American War in Vietnam, Eric Bogle composed what is, I think, one of the most powerful anti-war songs ever written. Sadly this song about an event in 1915, written in 1972 is as topical and as heart-breaking in 2007.

This is a version by the Pogues and the incredible video montage was created by SmileyNoir and posted on YouTube on October 29, 2006.
