Awesome Advent Day 15: Foul Football

When soldiers signed up to fight for their country in 1914, everyone said the war would be over by Christmas. Four brutal years later the war finally ended. One of the most remarkable things about it, though, was what did happen in 1914 on Christmas Day. Although technically the war still going on, soldiers called  a truce, got out of their trenches and had a game of football over no-mans-land!

The next days soldiers refused to fight each other but were given strict orders by their officers to carry on fighting.
