    Among various accounts of football played at the Western Front on Christmas Day, 1914, are reports of a game between the Argyll and Southern Highlanders and German Infantry Regiment 133. This book examines the first months of the war leading up to the truce through the stories of two possible participants: Jimmy Coyle, a former professional footballer from Edinburgh, and Albert Schmidt, a keen member of his local club in Saxony.
