Down at the front, on a cold winter's night in 1914, amidst the worst war the world had ever seen, an inexplicable silence spread from man to man. Belief was in the air. Then the soldiers ceased fire and the magic of Christmas took hold . . .

Carol Ann Duffy's brilliant poem celebrates the miraculous truce between the trenches, when enemy shook hands with enemy, shared songs, swapped gifts, even played football, and peace found a place in No Man's Land.

In a gorgeous small format with David Roberts' beautiful illustrations, The Christmas Truce is an irresistible festive gift.

Also available in a larger, special edition hardback.

Review:

`Duffy fans can both enjoy for themselves and give to all their friends her new poem, The Christmas Truce, lovely words perfectly matched by David Roberts's illustrations. Stocking fillers rarely have such substance' --Boyd Tonkin, Independent

`A sublime stocking filler to last a lifetime for 10+ is Carol Ann Duffy's poem The Christmas Truce, illustrated by David Roberts, about the night in the First World War in which British and German soldiers sang carols and played football in no man's land'
--The Times

`For a short history lesson to make children understand and grown men weep, Carol Ann Duffy's The Christmas Truce, illustrated by David Roberts, is beautiful' --Independent on Sunday `Books of the Year'

Book Description:
