I thought it would be fun to spend the next year or so, posting my favorite Sabaton songs up on the Anniversary of each event.
With that (albeit a day (and a couple hours) late), I am submitting the Christmas Truce Music Video for your enjoyment.
About "Christmas Truce" (From the official Sabaton Website)
December 24th, 1914: Late On Christmas Eve, British Expeditionary Force heard German troops in the trenches opposite them singing Christmas carols and saw lanterns and small fir trees along their trenches. Messages began to be shouted between the trenches.
The following day, British and German soldiers met in no man’s land and exchanged gifts, took pictures and some even played football. It was a rare but magic moment of peace and harmony in the midst of one of the most atrocious events in the 20th century.
