Lili Marlene

Recommended Posts

This is Lale Andersen (real name Elisabeth Carlotta Helena Berta Bunnenberg) The singer who originally sang "Lili Marlene" on German Forces Radio during WW2. It was picked up in North Africa by the Allied Troops there and became associated with the battles between the 8th Army and the Africa Corps. Lale died of a heart attack in Vienna in 1972 aged 67. As "Lilli Marlene" and "Underneath the lamplight" many other versions were later recorded.
