The Christmas Truce 1914

By Christmas 1914 soldiers from the Allied and German armies had dug-in along a trench system reaching from Switzerland to the North Sea. On Christmas Eve the guns fell silent. The following morning - Christmas Day - troops on both sides climbed from their trenches and met together in No-Man's-Land, between the battle lines. They shared drinks, played football, embraced, exchanged presents and sang carols.  Please click on the picture link.
