IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER

 

There are some dates or periods of time in the history of the world that are so significant that every one knows and remembers them. Echoes of Christmas 1914 in the trenches call to the present day when a letter found by chance in an antique desk brings one soldier’s experience hauntingly to life. It is the story based on the World War I. It highlights the peaceful celebration of Christmas between enemy armies. It also describes affection of a wife towards her husband who is out for a war. Heart-warming and spine-tingling, this is a perfect story to curl up with on a winter’s night.

Over it he found a notice which read “Jim’s last letter.” There was a letter inside addressed “12 Copper Beeches, Bridpot. The date was given December 26, 1914.nJim and Connie: The author read the letter. The owner of the desk might have put it in.

Jim McPherson had narrated it in his letter.

nUnforgettable Moments: The English and Germans were at war. The two armies stood in their respective trenches.
