Sudden defeat type song? Answered

I'm doing a school project on certain battles in WWII, but I need a song for the background. It's a film of sorts, and the song should be energetic and uplifting in the beginning, maybe orchestral and with booming drums, then fade into a sad ending to symbolize that even though the war was over, the losses were great and many people were dead.  Can anyone help?

Oxygene Part II by Jean-Michel Jarre.  Not sure how long your film is but this was used as the theme music to the 1981 film Gallipoli. Certainly fits as background music and depending on your film length could be stretched or shortened. All the best...

You can search the music at Freeplaymusic by "feel", and then download MP3 files.
