Product Information


  • At twilight on Christmas Eve 1914 the gun-barrage fades into the distance and an English and German Private call to each other across the corpse-ridden shell-holes.
  • Tentatively they meet in No Man's Land where they exchange cigarettes, names and information about each other.
  • Gradually other ranks join them and on Christmas Day the two enemies bury their dead together, share food and drink, exchange gifts, play football and speak longingly of their families.
  • At twilight they return again to their respective trenches to resume the ludicrous business of killing men like themselves and the gun-barrage is heard once more.
