WINGIV3Peace finds a place in Great War children’s book

It’s Christmas Eve 1914. A group of tired soldiers start singing Stille Nacht, the soldiers on the other side of no man’s land respond with Silent Night. The next day, German and British soldiers put down their guns and play a game of football to celebrate the spirit of Christmas Day. 

Children will love The Christmas Truce, written in rhyme by Hilary Robinson and illustrated by Martin Impey to mark this extraordinary moment in history. It tells the story of soldiers Ben and Ray shaking hands in friendship with Karl and Lars – when, for one day, peace found a place.

Army&You has ten copies of this touching book, published by Strauss House Productions and priced £7.99, to give away.
