    Anyone see the History channel tv show?

    When in no-man's land during the big war the opposing troops met in the middle.
    To chat, exchange gift, sing christmas carols etc. and then in 2 days they were blowing up each other again.
    The generals were beside themselves knowing that troops that know the enemy do not fight as hard and thought about shooting their own men in no-man's land to stop the meetings.

    Ugh

    We live in crazy times, old and new..LOL

    My 10 year old son recently purchased a book at school called "Truce" which was about the same thing. He is facinated by history.
