Random Cutting - Christmas Truce in the Trenches (1914)

Click to Read
A few examples of reports of the 1914 unofficial Christmas truce that happened spontaneously along the front line between British and German troops during World War I. It was frowned upon by the military hierarchy on both sides, but happened again, but to a lesser degree, in 1915. By 1916, though, there had been too much bloodshed for any coming together of the opposing sides.
