The 1914 Christmas Eve Truce

Standing up to your knees in the slime of a waterlogged trench.  You are on the dreaded Western Front on the evening of 24 December 1914.

You wade across to the firing step and take over the watch.  Exchanging pleasantries, your bleary-eyed and mud-spattered colleague shuffles off towards his dug out.  Your morale is high despite the horrors and hardships and you believe that in the New Year the nation’s army march towards a glorious victory.

You stamp your feet in a vain attempt to keep warm.  All is quiet when jovial voices call out from both friendly and enemy trenches.  Then the men from both sides start singing Christmas Eve carols and songs.  Next come requests not to fire, and soon the unthinkable happens: you start to see the shadowy shapes of soldiers gathering together in no-man’s land laughing, joking and sharing gifts

The meeting of enemies as friends in no-man’s land was experienced by hundreds, if not thousands, of men on the Western Front during Christmas 1914. However, 100 years after it occurred, the event is seen as a shining episode of sanity from among the bloody chapters of World War One.
