520    "The irreverent humour that inspired the likes of The 
       Wayne and Shuster Hour and Monty Python was born in the 
       trenches of the First World War, and The Dumbells -- 
       fighting soldiers who entertained at concert parties -- 
       were central to that birth. Soldiers of Song tells their 
       story. Lucky soldiers who could sing a song, perform a 
       skit, or pass as a "lady," were taken from the line and 
       put onstage for the benefit of their soldier-audiences. 
       The intent was to bolster morale and thereby help soldiers
       survive the war. The Dumbells' popularity was not limited 
       to troop shows along the trenches. The group managed a run
       in London's West End and became the first Canadian 
       production to score a hit on Broadway. Touring Canada for 
       some twelve years after the war, the Dumbells became a 
       household name and made more than twenty-five audio 
       recordings. If nationhood was won on the crest of Vimy 
       Ridge, it was the Dumbells who provided the country with 
       its earliest soundtrack. Pioneers of sketch comedy, the 
       Dumbells are as important to the history of Canadian 
       theatre as they are to the cultural history of early-
       twentieth-century Canada."--Back cover.
