Product Description
"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting." Sun Tzu (Chinese general and philosopher ~ died 496 BC)


The Christmas of 1914 - only months after World War I had started - brought an unexpected and quite welcome event - an unofficial truce.

This true event is the basis for the film Joyeux Noël with Benno Fürmann.


You get:

* A 5-page introductory overhead in English with background information
* A Feature * Film sheet with 20 follow-along questions in English
* An answer key.


Having students select from multiple choice answers allows

more time for their eyes to stay on the film and not spend

it looking down writing out answers and, thus,

not miss important moments in the film.


* Note: The overhead is the same as in my

* The Great War Centennial ~ The Christmas Truce

a documentary viewable online.

All items are classroom-ready for you to use. (10 pages)


* PLEASE NOTE *
This film is also in my

* Noël Bonus * Bundle

or

* World War I Centennial ~ Bonus Bundle

or

* World War I ~ The Great War Centennial Bundle

should you prefer to buy a bundle.

* SPECIAL NOTE 1 *
The Navajo Code Talkers that everyone knows about in World War II were preceded by the Choctaw Code Talkers used in World War I.

Here are some links for further information ~

* Oklahoma History Center Choctaw Code Talkers

* Choctaw Code Talkers of WW I

* Tobias Frazier Choctaw Code Talker

"In October 1918, the American Forces were trying to break the strong defensive line of the Germans with no success. Every time they prepared to go "over the top" to assault the line, the Germans were prepared for them. It was apparent the enemy had tapped and decoded the American communications lines. The Germans were not able to decode the American messages given in Choctaw and the result is a glorious part of history.

The phrase "Code Talker" did not exist during World War I, and Tobias Frazier was not known to refer to himself as one. The phrase was later coined during or after World War II."

* SPECIAL NOTE 2 *
Few people know about The Hello Girls ~ women recruited in WW I to be switchboard operators in Europe to fully utilize the new technology of the telephone at the front lines for speedy communication.

The book ~

* The Hello Girls: America's First Women Soldiers by Elizabeth Cobb


and an interesting video presentation by the author ~

* SPECIAL NOTE 3 *
Here is an 8-minute summary of this event with a nice map of how Europe was divided up at the time ~
'The Christmas Truce 1914'


* SPECIAL NOTE 4 *
Almost forgotten by history, in World War I thousands of Chinese volunteered to help the European war effort as laborers. Many died in France, some from the Spanish flu in 1918, and are buried in the Chinese Cemetery of Nolette à Noyelles-sur-Mer near Le Havre. Some are also in Folkestone, England on the English Channel.
