All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

This heartrending retelling of a powerful historic event recounts the astounding moment during World War I when Allied forces and German soldiers laid down their arms to celebrate Christmas Day 1914 together ? sharing food and drink, singing carols, and playing soccer. All is Calm weaves first-hand accounts by World War I soldiers with patriotic tunes, trench songs, and Christmas carols. “… it puts a human face on WWI.” San Francisco Globe
