Editorial Reviews

Review

A DELIGHTFUL new book has been published from Christian author Mike C. Snow - and what a delight it is! It includes many of the letters transcribed by our volunteers and also very apposite religious quotations. There are also the lyrics of some of the songs and hymns sung during the truce. And it's all beautifully illustrated. This is a book that would definitely be a treat to own - and to give as a Christmas present. --Alan Cleaver, editor, Christmas Truce 1914, UK

Format: Perfect Paperback
This was a wonderful recreation of a historical event. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the accounts of the German and British soldiers' truce. I saw the soldiers as human beings eager for the war to end. I saw soldiers as people who, apart from being soldiers, bore no ill will toward each other; they could share pictures and chocolates, laughter and hope the war would end soon. I liked the progression from past to the future with the emphasis peace will only be real because of Jesus Christ - the true reason for Christmas and a very holy night.

Format: Perfect Paperback
This is a truly moving account of the Christmas Eve in 1914 during World War I when German and British soldiers left their trenches and met in "no man's land" to celebrate a common day of peace and fellowship. Told through British soldiers' letters home, we see the common themes of surprise and thankfulness over this shared Christian celebration with their fellow men. This is followed by the dismaying official orders from those far from the war who declare that any similar displays of good fellowship toward enemy soldiers will be treated as treason.

The event is then contrasted in the second part of the book with a personal connection between rival nations at a higher level as we see the great affection between Germany's Kaiser Wilhelm II and Russia's Czar Nicholas II who were cousins through their grandmother, Queen Victoria. Their personal notes to each other from the year before World War I show their fondness and we follow the breakdown in relations between countries as each cousin strives to believe the best of the other behind the scenes.

Threaded through these accounts are Christmas carols, scripture of Christ's birth and teachings, psalms, reflection from saints and others including Mark Twain. The author uses all of these and his own reflections to bring the reader to consider peace, war, mercy, forgiveness, and living Christ's teachings.

This is a worthy accompaniment to Dickens' A Christmas Carol in reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas in bringing Christ's light into the world.

Highest recommendation.

I was expecting so much from this book. We read it in book club for Christmas. It has no story and is just thrown together. It was like a class project written by a 4th grader. How any publisher ever decided to publish this is beyond me.
