The Christmas Truce of 1914.

BBC magazine provides a lot of detail in its article about the French attitudes about the truce.  Surprisingly, so does the Washington Post.  I had not expected to see anything in the US media since America was not involved.   The Post story links to a photo archive of the event.  In some of the photos I cannot distinguish between the two sides, a testament to their shared humanity.
