ALL IS CALM: THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE OF 1914
The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. In a silence amid the combat, a soldier steps into No Man’s Land singing “Silent Night.” All is Calm relives an astounding moment in history when Allied troops and German soldiers laid down their arms to celebrate the holiday together, sharing food and drink, playing soccer, and singing carols. This dramatic retelling weaves together firsthand accounts of WWI soldiers with patriotic tunes, trench songs, and Christmas carols.
A remarkable true story, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it.
