Paul Maccartneys song pipes of peace was also about the Christmas truce of 1914. There was a game of football also in no man's land between the British and German soldiers. The truce lasted for different lengths of time along different parts of the trench line.
Alas tho the major's and senior officer's who were safe an sound some miles back in their warm H.QS found out that the troops on both sides had stoped killing one and other and ordered the killing to resume one more.
The people incharge were so afraid that the ordinary soldiers would stop killing and return home to their families that they threatened to shoot their own men for cowardice if they didn't take up arms again.
This had to be the most brutal and most senselessw war of all time. The cruelty and non understanding of young soldiers under constant shelling was criminal and the evil barstards who sent the troops over the top from the safety of their HQs some miles back from the front should never be forgotten even if it was 100 years ago .
God Bless the soul's of all the soldiers who fought and gave their life's for what they thought was right.
LEST WE FORGET.
