Well, it should be called The Syndicalist Hymn, I disapprove of the word "individualist" thrown around describing participation in a binary class-warfare context. War is war, and as horrible the slaughter may be, the true "individualist" is a conscientious objector in these ideological differences.
Also, aesthetically I found the sentimental tone of the singer sickening because it did not express anger or strength, and was from an era, mostly patriarchal and sexist, whereby women must project mournful weakness and pathos rather than defiant strident, and ironically, independence and individual choice of their role in these societies they are fighting for. Not a true individualist anthem!
