Christmas Countdown: 1943

December 1943” is soft folk/country from John Michael Montgomery. Two wandering soldiers in the woods leave war behind for a night in the grace of a solitary cabin. Then the Nazis show up…. (C’mon, Christmas!)

Defeater’s “December 1943,” on the other bloody stump, is a different outcome for soldiers in the unholy conflict. Screaming metal.

Perhaps more uplifting comes paternal shore leave for a sailor for a “Christmas in Pittsburg, 1943.” Boston Blackthorne commences Celtic, so it’s a sad tale of doom to be ‘cross the sea (Normandy). Sobering folk.
