In the cold, muddy trenches of the Western Front, there is a strange silence. As the men of a crack English trench raiding team enjoy their first day of peace in months, they begin to call out holiday greetings to their enemies on the German line. Soon men are fraternizing in No Man’s Land.
But when the English recognize some enemy trench raiders who only a few days before had launched a deadly attack on their position, can they keep the peace through the Christmas Truce?
