Songs about squaddies/wars/military/etc

What rock/pop songs do you know that are about soldiers or wars and anything related to that.

I'll kick it off with two.

Tragically Hip - Nautical Disaster; Dieppe raid.
Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms; WW1

Two little boys (had two little toys) - Rolf Harris
Paschendale - Chris Deburgh
Jeff Wayne (1978) - war of the worlds
John Tams - The songs of Rfn Hagman

I always thought 'Brothers In Arms' was about the Falklands? "Those mist-covered mountains..." surely not referring to Flanders fields?

That makes total sense,going by the lyrics. the video is about Flanders fields though.

Dont give a toss if I get flamed for it... but I still like "Camouflage" by Stan Ridgway... Yes its American and yes its a bit cheesy....

But then again so's "In the Army Now" by the Mighty Quo......

Oh dear... what have I unleashed..

At least "September Rain" by Green Day is pretty awesome !!!
