Good episode? Give it some love!
On Christmas Eve 1914, all went quiet on the Western Front. The screaming stopped. The rifles relented. The brutality and bloodshed were broken up. British and German troops laid down their weapons and walked out of their trenches. They shook hands, they exchanged gifts and they played football.

But one hundred years on from the Christmas Truce, what do we know about the footballers that went to war? Those that swapped standing side by side on the field of play, for fighting side by side on the killing fields of the Somme. We find out more in this special documentary.
