Item description for Silent Night, Holy Night: The Story of the Christmas Truce by The Mormon Tabernacle Choir & Walter Cronkite...

December 1914 was grim for the thousands of soldiers who had dug into the frozen trenches on either side of Flanders Field. What lay between them in the early months of the First Great War was a field of sorrow - No Man's Land - littered with barbed wire and decaying corpses. This sober background is the setting for this very powerful and poignant true story previously known as "The Christmas Truce".

For two days, their guns were silent as men who had shot at each other only hours before experienced a miracle, as they laid down their weapons to exchange gifts and special holiday traditions. This common bond of Christmas was shared in a spontaneous celebration that culminated in the singing of the beloved carol "Silent Night." Almost a century later this amazing story is retold by Walter Cronkite with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square in this beautiful Christmas gift book, Beautifully illustrated by Robert T. Barrett. A CD with Walter Cronkite's incomparable narration of the story and the Choir's stirring rendition of "Silent Night" is included with this must-have Christmas keepsake. This book and CD will become a Christmas tradition for families across the country. The book contains Cronkite's narration and so families can listen to the CD as they follow along in the book.

This story of peace on earth is as applicable today as it was then.

Reviews - What do customers think about Silent Night, Holy Night: The Story of the Christmas Truce?

Prince of Peace  Dec 8, 2005
Wonderful true story told by a comforting Walter Cronkite voice and heavenly Mormon Tabernacle Choir. This is one of the "regulars" that I read with my children each Christmas, illustrating that the power of the spirit of Christmas can disarm complete armies. A wonderful testament that Jesus Christ literally is the Prince of Peace.
Human Potential  Dec 23, 2003
It's amazing when you think that on any given day people who were killing each other would and could be friends under different circumstances. This story just shows the human potential for peace even under the worse conditions. War is always tragic but it shows that mankind has much more in common then it has differences. Pray for peace.
A wonderful Book  Dec 9, 2003
This is a terrific book that shows the juxtoposition of the horror's of war with the moving power of the Spirit of Christmas to bring enemies together. The book offers a great opportunity to discuss forgivness and brotherhood. It also shows true Christian behavior at its finest.
The tragedy of war.  Dec 2, 2003
The book is nicely done with pictures I think intended to soften the images of war, the dead soldiers, etc. I ordered the book to send to my children as my youngest is currently serving in Iraq. I found it too upsetting to read about the tragic loss of lives and it was not something I wanted my grandchildren, ages 1-12 to read. It is well done, but it was just too sad for me.
