PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Does your textbook talk about the Christmas Truce of 1914? On the first Christmas of World War I, British and German soldiers spontaneously agreed to a ceasefire. They sang carols, exchanged gifts, and even played some soccer games in the middle of No Man's Land!

This is a simple assignment that can be done within 1 class period or assigned as homework. It's a short reading of a primary source account of the spontaneous ceasefires that popped up on Christmas in 1914. I found two sources discussing this incredible event, one from a rank-and-file soldier and another from a general in the British army.

There is a short introduction for context, followed by the personal account, followed by 10 questions of varied difficulty.
