An enchanting tale, as Weintraub brings history to life, in this documented, well-researched book.
Weintraub fills the book with heart-warming information relating to the event of the Christmas 1914 Truce on the Front across France. I found the book to be both insightful and interesting, although felt that the Chapters, and therefore the story did not really progress throughout the book.
Although easy to understand, after re-reading, it is more noticeable that the book tends to be rather fragmented, and slightly repetitive, which caused myself to become relatively bored at some parts of the book.
However, I would recommend Weintraub's work, especially Silent Night, to anyone looking for an informative, yet easy read (I first read this book when I was 14 and coped with the terms that he uses).
One certainty, is that Weintraub captures the spirit in his writing. Definitely one to read at Christmas, over and over again!
