The Christmas Truce of 1914
« on: November 22, 2011, 04:47:13 PM »
"...the soldiers telling of their eagerness and delight in sharing Christmas with their enemies. I can imagine them climbing out of their cold, muddy trenches and walking out into "no man's land" to shake hands with their foes. They said prayers and buried their dead, exchanged gifts and sang carols around the bonfire, they ate together and played soccer, and even had a communion service at an old farm. They were able to see the men across the battlefield, not as a demonic foe but as fellow human beings created in the image of God. In short, these young men exemplified what Christmas is all about"

There are links to two other reviews of my book, a Johnny Cash/ Collin Raye song about the truce, etc, here:

"Not just at Cristmas time..."

As the book reflects upon the events leading up to WWI and on the Armistice,  here is One review reminder:

"I recommend this book to anyone and not just at Christmas time. The story of the Christmas Eve truce of 1914 is timeless as is the message underlying the events."
