Belgian composer Pierre Leemans began composing the "March of the Belgian Paratroopers" while serving in the army during World Wars I. Left incomplete, he returned to it decades later during World War II at the request of a group of paratroopers. His most famous composition is meant to portray a military patrol, approaching from a distance, passing by, and then leaving.
