Most of the soldiers had more in common with the other soldiers than the people ordering them to live in the hell that was the trenches. If I recall correctly, they also sang Christmas carols across the open fields.
@Arch111, then proceeded to shoot eachother the next day. Classic Christmas
@Richard Cypher, actually they didn’t, neither side wanted to take the first shot so they had to be switched out with other regiments
@Richard Cypher, I thought they were rotated to new locations because they didn't want to fight each other after that
Wars would play out very differently if the soldiers stayed home and the leaders fought one another in a ring.
Hunger Games for world leaders anyone?
@Bad Suggestions, fûck yes!!
You have to officially change your name now to Good Suggestions
@Bad Suggestions, i agree with them, good suggestions it is
@big freedom, the ratio of bad to good suggestions must be measured first.
@megamanx181x, mean death,
Better keep your head down low
@MrDonut33, I respect anyone who puts sabaton lyrics out there
Also a lot more people than before know about this thanks to Doctor Who.
Here's a cool video on it by extra history about the Christmas truce
If you haven't seen Joyeaux Noel, a french movie about the Christmas Truce, I wholeheartedly recommend it. I watch it every year.
