Summary
Whether as an instrument of propaganda or as a form of entertainment, classical music had a cultural relevance and a ubiquity in the war effort that are hard to imagine today. Exploring an abundance of sources ranging from government archives to the correspondence of musicians, this book traces how musicians in the United States responded and contributed to the war, following individual performers and composers as they faced military duty or sought alternative ways in which they could serve
