A. true story of the meaning of Christmas, demonstrating the goodness that dwells in the heart and soul of man. In the last chapter the author posits of what might have happened if the world took the small embers of the Christmas Truce 1914 and carried it's spirit and light to brighten the world with the first and true message of the first Christmas...Peace on Earth and Goodwill to Man!
I just finished this on Christmas. In a world where my county has been at war most of my life this book opened my mind to the insanity of war.
I really enjoyed Stanley Weintraub's style and the manner Edward Holland (narrator) brought the book to life. Weintraub touches on the subject of propaganda and the attitudes shared by men on apposing sides after initiating the truce. The use of diary entries, letters from eye witnesses and the description of life in the trenches provided a greater understanding regarding the reluctance to continue fighting after Christmas 1914. I found it hard to break away from the audio.
