The Christmas Truce

It’s┬áChristmas Eve 1914.

A group of tired soldiers start singing Stille Nacht.

Soldiers the other side of the divide on No Man’s Land respond with Silent Night.

The following day, soldiers on both sides put down their weapons and celebrate the spirit of Christmas with a friendly football match.

In the sequel to the hugely popular Where The Poppies Now Grow, The Christmas Truce finds soldiers Ben and Ray shaking hands in friendship with Karl and Lars, a tribute to that remarkable moment in history when, for one day, peace found a place.
