Silent Night, Silent Guns: The 1914 Christmas Truce

Product Description

Author Timothy J. Demy

ISBN 9798986817200

Pages 76

Fought between 1914 and 1918, what was supposed to be “the war to end all wars” was a failure. Yet, in the midst of it, for a few hours on Christmas Eve 1914, the guns fell silent as soldiers laughed, sang, played, and conversed with one another in traditional celebration of the birth of the historic figure believed by many to be the Prince of Peace.
Silent Night, Silent Guns recounts the extraordinary story of the unofficial 1914 Christmas truce of the First World War. It was a remarkable moment in a war that claimed millions of lives. For a few hours, and in some instances a few days, for many troops fighting from the trenches of France and Flanders and facing one another across No Man’s Land, the guns were silent—all was quiet on the Western Front.
