So very interesting. Thank you for your informative non-fiction piece. Well done.
Wow this is great. I have such chills. War is such a sign of hatred and to see the hope that Christmas brought actually gave me goosebumps. Congratulations on your EC! Happy Dance!
This was so touching! I loved how you showed the action and the diary comments and of what happened to two of the men. Wonderfully written and thought provoking. Congratulations on your win!
Congratulations, Noel. I think we need a white flag waved today in our politically divided world.
Congratulations on your 2nd place EC Noel. It's well-deserved for your recount of this amazing and moving part of history. Even though I've heard this story before, and even seen the movie based on it, I learnt new things. How good that it prompted the German man to start the German Youth Hostels. How poignant that people can down arms to sing and fraternise together, but then go back to warring against each other.
Great job, Noel! Congratulations!
