Christmas Truce of 1914

  • This event has passed.

December 3, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Dave Davison will give a talk on the Christmas Truce of 1914. Only a few months after the start of World War I, a million men were already dead as the English, French and German antagonists settled down into trench warfare in December 1914. As the holidays approached, spontaneous cease-fires spread up and down the lines where men on both sides met in No Mans Land to share a respite from the Great War.

Dave Davison resides in Guilford and is President & CEO of the American Savings Foundation in New Britain, CT.
