Joyeux Noel - Christmas Truce

During the first world war the French, Scottish and Germans took a break from the massacre of trench warfare to meet in no lands on Christmas Eve. On Christmas day they had a football match before resuming the carnage of war, but not before sheltering in each other's trenches from the artillery fire.

The Generals and the Bishops were most upset over the Christmas Truce and charged many of them with fraternising with the enemy or sent them to another front of the war.

Joyeux Noel is a must see true story movie about how synthetic war is. 

Poor, largely uneducated people fighting on behalf of rich white men with the flag as their incentive.
