“Silent Night”- “The Christmas Truce of 1914”
By December 1914, the First World War had been raging for only four months and it was becoming very apparent that it would not be over by Christmas as the participating armies had predicted. Occurring on Christmas Eve and Day, The Christmas Truce saw a halt to the slaughter of the Western Front when the soldiers embraced the Christmas spirit.
