The battle of the Marne with the music that was inspired upon it.

I almost never have anything to say about your postings, but this one is absolutely bizarre! Did you edit the clips to fit the music?

No... I was looking some documentary compilation about the battle. I found one, in color and widescreen, which I tried to correct. There are many great recordings of this tango, I chose a favorite one.

The original recording of the tango, which was done at the Victor studios in Camden.

Wonderful film clips, none of which even I (a lifelong WW1 devotee) had ever seen before. Thanks for finding them.
