Storyboard Text

  • Signpost: Quoted words
  • ""It was so quiet, it was uncanny," he wrote in his diary"(64).
  • Signpost: Numbers and stats 
  • "And yet more such truces-hundreds of them-were arranged that Christmas morning all along the Western Front"(69).
  • Mindset: Growth
  • "Spencer could German fluently, so he"went out and found that they were willing to have an armistice for (four) hours...This I arranged and then- can you imagine?-both sides came out, met in the middle, shook hands, wished each other compliments of the season, and had a chat"" (68). 
  • The author quoted these words because this officer is telling us how much of a surprise it was that no one was fighting and that both sides wanted a short truce.
  • Word Gap
  • "Spencer could German fluently, so he"went out and found that they were willing to have an armistice for (four) hours...This I arranged and then- can you imagine?-both sides came out, met in the middle, shook hands, wished each other compliments of the season, and had a chat"" (68). 
  • This is interesting because it is saying that day there was hundreds of cease-fires between two enemies that had to disobey their officers and take a leap of trust onto the most unforgiving battle field.   
  • Summary: SWBS
  • If these soldiers had not of called this truce, then there would have been no break and some more casualties on Christmas day. 
  • Book Club Question
  • What changed the soldiers who wanted to fight so badly into people who would later create a truce. 
  • Definition: An agreement made by opposing sides in a war to stop fighting for a certain time; a truce. Technical term. 
  •    The Christmas truce was over but still no one (the soldiers), wanted to fight, so the soldiers would just fake fight the enemy and meet secretly. 
  • What changed the people who only wanted to kill into people that would risk their lives for people they hardly knew.
