"Listen son" said the man with the gun... #UsAndThem

A World War I centenary memorial in Dunham Town.

One of the most powerful and poignant pieces of music ever composed is surely Us and Them by Pink Floyd: it sums up the futility of war and how the masses are sacrificed for the gains of the rich and powerful.

"...Us and Them,
and after all we're only ordinary men
Me, and you
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do
'Forward' he cried from the rear and the front rank died
The generals sat, as the lines on the map
moved from side to side..."
