    At Christmas 1914, amidst the horrors of trench warfare, soldiers of the opposing sides shook hands in No Man's Land, exchanged souvenirs, even played football. The truce between the trenches extended over at least two-thirds of the British line and there were similar ceasefires in the French and Belgian sectors. For this book, the authors have talked to veterans and researched war diaries, letters and contemporary published accounts to offer a complete account of Christmas in the trenches.
