Hi all

        There appears to be a plethora of books about the christmas truce but many look a little cheap and perhaps not to the highest historical standard. Is there any that people would recommend?

        Thanks in advance

I was trying to find a similar thread to remember the author of my recommendation; I eventually found it with an alternative spelling of the midwinter festival that some amongst us do not mention until 24th December.........

I would recommend all of the above, particularly Chris' comprehensive survey which puts the events into the context of the catastrophic piecemeal attacks that proceeded them. The other one I really like is by Terri Blom-Crocker; it's as much about the development of the myths and legends and is outstanding on that.

Pete.
