4.0 out of 5 stars Touching adaptation of the Christmas classic., 10 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Night Before Christmas, 1914: An adaptation of the classic poem, based upon the Christmas Truce of World War One. (Kindle Edition)
Reading this even on a warm sunny English summer day, I could really picture the scenes as soldiers on both sides came together to celebrate Christmas and share their humanity and humility with each other. It was also.poignant to read the notes about the other truces that were observed and the reaction to them by the commanders. Just one note to add the notes refer to men who were shot for cowardice and desertion, let's not forget many of these men were suffering terribly from what we now know as shell shock or PTSD. After 100 years let's move on and recognise the universal suffering that war visits on all involved.

Had heard of this poem, but being lazy I never read it. I have now and everyone who loves a read should do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Food for thought, 5 Jan 2014
This review is from: The Night Before Christmas, 1914: An adaptation of the classic poem, based upon the Christmas Truce of World War One. (Kindle Edition)
This poignant poem certainly made me think about what's important in life. Especially at this festive time of year (well, it was last week). I wonder if such an event could ever happen again, in Afghanistan for example? Perhaps beach volleyball would be more appropriate though

3-2 to Fritz !!! Wouldn't happen now. More like 7-2. This is a beautifully plagiarised poem from the original we all know to include the story we all know. So finely cut and pasted ....
