The Christmas Truce

Carol Ann Duffy (Author) David Roberts (Illustrator)
Available

Description

Down at the front, on a cold winter's night in 1914, amidst the worst war the world had ever seen, an inexplicable silence spread from man to man. Belief was in the air. Then the soldiers ceased fire and the magic of Christmas took hold . . .

Carol Ann Duffy's brilliant poem celebrates the miraculous truce between the trenches, when enemy shook hands with enemy, shared songs, swapped gifts, even played football, and peace found a place in No Man's Land.

In a gorgeous small format with David Roberts' beautiful illustrations, The Christmas Truce is an irresistible festive gift.

Also available in a larger, special edition hardback.
