The Christmas Miracle of 1914
The story of that extraordinary Christmas of 1914. They were two days when the reality and futility of war were never so relevant, the spirit of peace and goodwill never so strong.
Soldiers from Britain and Germany huddled in freezing, muddy trenches, shells and bullets exploding around them, caught in one of the most futile and bloody conflicts of the 20th century and yet on the Christmas of 1914 the guns fell silent.
