American audiences may recognize her as singing the closing song in DOCTOR STRANGELOVE.

For some reason, my mother absolutely HATED her!

"Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn...?"

(Some may know of her from the Pink Floyd song from 1980)

................

I've never hated her--not by any stretch of the imagination--but for some reason, thoughts of her, more than anyone else, personalize that hideous war for me in such an uncomfortable way that is difficult to think of her without suffocating on thoughts of all the young men who left home, never to return.
