The Christmas Truce | First World War Centenary

Merry Christmas 2011.  A link to the podcast over at the Imperial War Museum on the 1914 Christmas truce.  And a link to my new blog on the First World War as 2014 approaches.

IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM’s Voices of the First World War

Here is the ninth in a series of podcasts that delve into the IWM’s Sound Archive to bring you the voices of those who lived through the First World War. Find out what a huge range of people felt, experienced and witnessed during 1914–1918, and the impact the events of those years had on their lives.

The Christmas Truce of 1914 has become almost legendary over time, with stories of German and British soldiers putting down their arms to play football in no man’s land. But what really happened? Find out from those who witnessed this incredible – and unexpected – piece of history.
