John McCutcheon's Christmas in the Trenches (mp3) tells the christmas truce story in a way that makes me weep. I've been looking for some corroboration of the story for a while; thanks for the link, crash.

Fantastic. Best line in the links you passed over was... The regiment on our left sang "While Sheperds Watched," Tipperary and the National Anthem. They had hardly started the second verse of God Save the King when the Germans disliking either the tune or words aimed a bomb at the singers, it fell short however not hurting anybody.
LMFAO
As they say.
