This is an Audible Original Book and I love history. While I listened to this story, I kept hearing Celtic Thunder's "Christmas 1915" a wonderful song about WWI truce during Christmas. I am preparing for next year's history lessons and I think I will be doing this grouping for WWI.
The story is a letter from a commanding officer to the mother of a young man who died too young on Christmas Eve, 1914. It is a sad letter, but also so very illuminating as to the men who fought.
