The German and British soldiers in the trenches make an unofficial Christmas truce, with carols and a football match. But the officers aren't happy...A veteran soldier and a young recruit are 'celebrating' Christmas in the trenches of Flanders in 1914. They hear the enemy sing carols and watch them place Christmas Trees in the trenches opposite. They begin to shout greetings across no-man's land and end up playing an international football match. The match is hard-fought but with moments of generosity and sportsmanship on both sides. They see the 'enemy' as vulnerable humans and the officers are furious.

A moving and fascinating look at a very human moment of the Great War, by the master historical storyteller. Perfect for 7+
