This was a very interesting view of a rather unusual military organization. After a long career as a musician in bands of the Australian Army, I could recognize many of the events described in the book, and had many a laugh whilst reading it. This was usually at the expense of the military system which, then as now, has a great deal of difficulty in accepting the need for a musical organization to work in a generally democratic manner (which seems almost anti-authoritarian to any Regimental Sergeant Major who might pass by). That said, there is no officer in any of the services who spends so much time with (and is so frequently under the direct scrutiny of) his/her troops than is the Music Director of a service band, and this book touches upon that potential problem area.
John Canarina tells the tale well, and many of the names of those who passed through this orchestra during its existence could later be found in the upper echelon of professional musicians in the US. The depth of research provides innumerable interesting facts, along with a good deal of information from interviews with those involved. It is clear that many ex-members of the 7th Army Orchestra would now look back on their enforced time in the military with some pride, and probably with a wry smile too.
A fascinating book, part history, part memoir, and a worthwhile collection for any lover of the symphony orchestra.

This book is a fine piece of history. We forget the role of music in our war efforts and this documents an important part of that.

Great for thumbing through. The seriousness is affecting. And the research is awesome. It fills an important role.

As a former member of the 7th Army Band and occasional performer with the Orchestra, I thoroughly enjoyed John's well written and factual book.

This was a great, review of the 7th Army Symphony Orchestra. I was a member of that orchestra from 1958-1960. John Canarina, who was the conductor when I left, did some excellent, time consuming research to get information on the preceding years accurately. The 7th Army Symphony Orchestra was the most anti military orchestra I'd ever imagine, even in those days. It was extremely funny, or in one word, hilarious.

Here is a bunch of musicians who were drafted, all eager to get on with their personal careers, and all but one of us in an 80 piece orchestra was drafted. They kept us off our official base, which was located in Stuttgart Vaighingen, Germany, probably to avoid embarrassment to our commanding officers.

I bought several copies of the book, one a personally autographed copy, to pass out to friends.
