One of the worst stories i heard about the xmas truce was when on boxing day, a tommy on guard saw and heard the germans singing, dancing and calling out to the tommys to joing them again. He called HQ, excited at the possibility of another day of peace, and told them what was happening and where. He had just gathered his mates together and were climbing out of their trench when a shell fell on the german bunker they were going to.

If I ran a country, the first thing I would do would be to put the entire armed forces in reserve. I would lock all the military weapons in a bunker, and then, whenever somebody decided they wanted a war, I'd just be like "Fine, get your best ******* football(soccer for Americans) players, and we'll meet on the field"
If they tried to take the country by force, then I'd call the military. But honestly, why kill people when you can settle something with a nice game of football?

> soccer instead of football   
> points instead of goals   
Must have been written by an Americunt. Also FYI the Germans actually won the football game.

This reminds me of a story I heard about WW2.

An American ambulance was driving around lost, trying to find their way back to American lines, when they came across a German road block. The Germans simply pointed them in the right direction and let them go. The next day the ambulance came by the road block, dropped a box on the ground and left. The Germans were apprehensive about opening it because they didn't know what it was, they were afraid it was a bomb or something. When they finally did get it open they found that it was filled with cigarettes.

They also shared items like food, smokes, drinks and even souvenirs from their respective countries, of course some of them did not agree on the 1914 Christmas Truce, one of these men was named Adolf Hitler.

The men who participated in the truce were later scrambled in the front to prevent them from hesitating to shoot the soldiers who they've made friends with.

The following Christmas days also had Truce initiatives, but most failed, given that the german/british armies considered such acts of kindness with the enemy an act of betrayal.

In my opinion, one of the most touching failed truce reports was the one of an unarmed soldier who was shot and killed while setting up a christmas tree near his trench in the frontline.

**** war, man.

This is a movie portraying just this. It gives you the background to the whole story and is an overall great christmas-time movie.

There was a specific corporal at that time which was outrageous with the ''peace incident'' at the fronts. His name was Adolf Hitler.

my great gears grandad was on playing football.
He said something really full with feels
and iv voulded not to forget what he said pass down

" These people are not fiend, they have feelings & emotions,
before all this i thought that if i killed these people
no warm was made,until i realized they are no different from us.
Id happily kill myself to stop this war its plain confusion
we people dont deserve this."

There is a movie that very loosely depicts this. It's called Joyeux Noel. It means "Merry Christmas" in French (as far as I know). It's an extremely good movie and everyone in the universe should watch it.

Who brought a ball to a frontline trench? What, were they hoping for a quick kick about once that war business with those pesky germans got rectified?
