Another one of Sabaton’s timeless classics and an absolute fan favorite, I guess. It’s one of those songs that fans want to hear them play, and Sabaton approves of that.
This week on Sabaton Saturday, the start of World War II in 1939. The year that the Germans invaded Poland and sparked the flame of war in Europe.
We, the Dutch people, have never really experienced the horrors that the World War I brought along. With the excuse of being “neutral”, we were ignored by the German forces that cut straight through Belgium, without harming Holland.
Sabaton have written a song about the horrors of the First World War, ‘The Price Of A Mile’. It’s about all the young men being stuck in a trench, knee-deep in the muddy water. It was cold, it was filthy, everyone was afraid. People were dying out there. And if you didn’t die, you were going insane.
