Freddie made a spectacular dive, caught the ball in both hands and threw it to a group of Germans.’ A moving and compelling story that takes four friends from the fields of Suffolk to France in the midst of the First World War Faced by the Germans and the appalling conditions in which they fight, their excitement and enthusiasm begins to fail. Then, one Christmas Day, an extraordinary thing happens.
