The Christmas Truce

12/23/2013 By:

Perhaps you have heard about the Christmas Truce, when peace took hold for the day between the trenches in No Man’s Land during World War I and enemy soldiers came together for a day of camaraderie. This article from BBC talks about the reality and specialness of the day. There has been much of myth that has arisen about the Christmas Truce, which the author addresses and corrects. You’ll also find that this was not the only time in the history of warfare that there were truces over periods of time. The Christmas Truce just happens to be the most well-known.
