Music have always followed soldiers on the battlefield. In the older days for signals and orders. Concurrently with that to boost own troops morale, or lower the enemies. Aside from a more curious use of them, like when the US tried to annoy Manuel Noriega to leave the Vaticans embassy in Panama by way of Rock music, then I havent heard any official use of it in recent history. So... 2 questions: 1) Have anyone heard of use of music in a modern (Post WW2) war or combat situation, official or unofficial ? 2) What would be the tune to play before going into combat ? As an example, then I knew someone who used to play this before going on patrol: But what tune could motivate or focus the troops? (The fictional attack from Apocalypse now with Wagners ride of the Valkyries excluded)
