“The soldiers gently sway on a cool breeze. Neither side moves or speaks. They examine one another like long lost brothers trying to identify these strange faces in front of them.’ Private James Boyce
The Western Front 1914: lights appear from the German trenches, ghosts rise behind the horizon, soldiers meeting between the firing lines. The events which follow are the most astounding stories of the Great War told through the eyes of one soldier, Private James Boyce: ‘We are fighting the same enemy, just on two different sides.’ Boyce takes us on a magical haunting journey through the events surrounding the Christmas Truce.
