The Christmas Truce: The Place Where Peace Was Found



It's Christmas Eve. A group of tired soldiers start singing Stille Nacht. Soldiers the other side of No Man's Land respond with Silent Night. The next day, soldiers on both sides put down their weapons and celebrate Christmas Day with a friendly soccer match. In the sequel to Where the Poppies Now Grow, The Christmas Truce - The Place Where Peace Was Found is based on that remarkable moment in history and finds soldiers Ben and Ray shaking hands in friendship with Karl and Lars. Written with touching sensitivity and brought to life through powerful illustrations the story is a celebration of the human spirit and marks the time when, for one day, peace found a place.
