A Christmas Truce at the World War I Front

(This article was published in The Remnant in 2006 after having first appeared on the Your Guide to 20th Century History website. It is reproduced here with the permission of the author. The original song Christmas in the Trenches by John McCutcheon is well worth listening to as you read this incredible story from a day and age not so very far removed from our own but, alas, fading in every way from the consciousness of "grown up" and "enlightened" men who've lost sight of God, Country and even who and what they are anymore-- much less the true meaning of Christmas.  In honor of our annual tradition, once again CHRISTMAS IN THE TRENCHES: THE TRUE STORY Michael J. Matt)

And for your listening pleasure...
