Christmas Truce

100 years ago, World War I was raging.  The soldiers who had signed up thought they’d be home for Christmas. Not true, in fact it raged on for many more years. But at the time they didn’t know that.  Along the lines though, in many places, on Christmas of 1914 the soldiers on both sides braved crossing the lines to meet with their fellow men.

It’s a famous story, which the militaries on every side still try to hide to some degree. Fraternisation with the enemy was a offence punishable by death.  But the soldiers on all sides decided that the establishment wanting them in the meat grinder isn’t as important as treating people as people.  And being treated as people.

Anyway, relates to our games in some ways, but is just a good story to share.
