Every Christmas I look forward to hearing on the radio one of my favorite childhood songs of the season. You know the one, about Snoopy and the Red Baron locked in mortal conflict in their vintage planes during World War One? You might not realize that as whimsical as the song is, it’s based on something that actually did happen.
As I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, here is my gift to you—the true story of the 1914 Christmas Truce. Merry Christmas mein friends!
