Summary

On July 29, 1914, the world's peace was shattered as the artillery of the Austro-Hungarian empire began shelling the troops of the country to its south. What followed was like a row of falling dominoes as one European country after another rushed into war. Soon most of Europe was fighting in the First World War. But who could have guessed that on December 25, the troops would openly defy their commanding officers by stopping the fighting and having a spontaneous celebration of Christmas with their enemies? In what can only be described as a Christmas miracle, this truce actually happened in the midst of one of the bloodiest conflicts in all of history. This beautiful and heartrending narrative will remind everyone how brotherhood and love reach far beyond war and politics.
