Summary

"The Barrack-Room Ballads" is a collection of songs and poems by Rudyard Kipling. They deal chiefly with the late-Victorian British Army and are primarily written in a vernacular dialect. This compendium contains some of Kipling's most famous work, and includes the poems "Gunga Din", "Tommy" and "Danny Deever". This wonderful and seminal collection of poems would make for a great addition to any bookshelf, and is certainly not to be missed by fans and collectors of Kipling's work. The poems contained herein include: Danny Deever; Tommy; Fuzzy-Wuzzy; Soldier, Soldier; Screw-Guns; Cells; Gunga Din; Oonts; Loot; 'Snarleyow'; The Widow at Windsor; Belts; The Young British Soldier; Mandalay; Troopin'; The Widow's Party, etcetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
