This is from a wonderful folk song and book by John McCutcheon

A video slide show of a class project in which students made a slide show based on the story of Christmas in the Trenches.

Here, McCutcheon sings and talks about reactions to his song in Europe.

McCutcheon wrote a wonderful illustrated kids book, which I have been reading that last leading up to Remembrance Day (Canada). The book comes with a CD, containing his song, as well as German and English versions of Silent Night.

A bio of John McCutcheon

McCutcheon first heard the story of Christmas truces some twenty years ago and was inspired to make the song and story book.
