During the darkest days of WWII, as Hitler’s war machine attempted to pound Great Britain into submission, Vera Lynn became synonymous with the indomitable spirit of the British people. One of the most celebrated performers of the 1940s, her hugely popular radio shows, recordings and films endeared her to the public, helping to reinforce Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s
‘never give up’ spirit.
Performing such classic songs as ‘We’ll meet again’ and ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’ the ‘Forces Sweetheart’ made a significant contribution to the moral of British and Allied soldiers during WWII. Her unwavering support for the troops saw her performing tirelessly, travelling to Burma, Egypt and India, often in hostile conditions. In fact such was Vera Lynn’s universal appeal that many a Luftwaffe pilot risked disciplinary action to tune in to the BBC just to hear her voice.
For tha allies in particular there were two people who provided the ‘sound track’ for World War Two, Glenn Miller, and Vera Lynn.
