The Christmas Truce
During the Christmas of Winters 1914 and 1915 on the Western Front a ceasefire was held between British, German, and French soldiers. Celebrations were held out in No Man's Land and gifts were exchanged between the opposing armies. Something as marvelous as this could never happen again but these truces proved that there is indeed humanity in warfare.
About this creation

A German medic bandages a French soldier's wounded arm.

"Frohe Weihnachten mein Freund."
"Merry Christmas Mate."

"Frohe Weihnachten."
"Joyeux Noel."

The Commanding officers share a drink together.

A French, Two Germans and a Australian soldier have a football game.

Although gifts were few, cigaretes, champagne, and chocolates made fine choices.

The two soldier's weapons which they had held tightly and trigger-happily hours before now lay unnoticed and forgotten.

Quoting A Person Excellent rendition of the Christmas Truce. The only thing, is that the STG-44 or MP-44 was not used in WW1. Otherwise, this is a superb job.
You're absolutley right about that. They were the only ones I had at the moment.

Quoting Lt. Colonel Ghostman Pretty nice. Very good details. Well done, except for the MP-44 rifle. Otherwise, good building. ~ Ghostman :)
You add a few unrealistic things aswell. Most notably random Star Wars.
