"Coat of Arms" as written by and Joakim/sundstr�m Broden....
At dawn envoy arrives, morning of October 28th
"No day" proven by deed
Descendants of Sparta, Athens and Crete

Look north, ready to fight
Enemies charge from the hills
To arms, facing defeat
There's no surrender, there's no retreat

Time after time, force their enemies back to the line
Call to arms banners fly in the wind
For the glory of Hellas
Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death"
Blood of king Leonidas

Air raid pounding the land
Bombers are flying both day and night
Endure six days of rain
Dropped by invaders, bomb raid in vain

Strike hard, the tables have turned
Drive them back over the hills
At arms, just like before
Soldiers, civilians, Hellas at war

By their own hand forced the enemy out of their land

Call to arms, banners fly in the wind
For the glory of Hellas
Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death"
Blood of king Leonidas

Just like their ancestors ages ago
Fought in the face of defeat
Those three hundred men left a pride to uphold
Freedom of death in effect

Then, now again
Blood of heroes saving their land

Call to arms, banners fly in the wind
For the glory of Hellas
Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death"
Blood of king Leonidas

Call to arms, banners fly in the wind
For the glory of Hellas
Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death"
Blood of king Leonidas

    General CommentIt's about the Greco-Italian War I think. This song has been released on Youtube March 1st but the new album "Coat of Arms" hits the stores on the 21st of May.

    General CommentAt dawn envoy arrives
    Morning of October 28th
    "No day" proven by deed
    Descendants of Sparta,
    Athens and Crete!

    Look north, ready to fight
    Enemies charge from the hills
    To arms! Facing defeat!
    There's no surrender! There's no retreat!

    Time after time
    Force their enemies back to the line
    Call to arms banners fly in the wind
    For the glory of Hellas
    Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death!"
    Blood of king Leonidas

    Air raid pounding the land
    Bombers are flying both day and night
    Endure six days of rain
    Dropped by invaders bomb raid in vain

    Strike hard, the tables have turned
    Drive them back over the hills
    At arms! Just like before
    Soldiers, civilians, Hellas at war

    By their own hand
    Forced the enemy out of their land

    Call to arms, banners fly in the wind
    For the glory of Hellas
    Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death!"
    Blood of king Leonidas

    Just like their ancestors ages ago
    Fought in the face of defeat
    Those three hundred men
    Left a pride to uphold
    Freedom of death in effect

    Then, now again
    Blood of heroes saving their land

    Call to arms, banners fly in the wind
    For the glory of Hellas
    Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death!"
    Blood of king Leonidas

    Call to arms, banners fly in the wind
    For the glory of Hellas
    Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death!"
    Blood of king Leonidas

    Are the 100% correct lyrics, but you're right it's about the Greco-Italian war, but it was WWII not 1.
