How did 100,000 German & British soldiers put a war on hold — some even playing a game of football together — without the approval of their superiors?
I've not seen these wonderfully evocative pictures before (I don't know if you know who was 'behind the lens?) - they capture all that the article sets out to convey. It's hard to comprehend how those who returned to 'normal life' could ever again comprehend the minutiae of their previous domesticity. Very thought provoking.
What a beautiful write-up. I was so captivated reading this. It has left me wondering if something like this could be possible for the many wars still being fought, Russia and Ukraine being among them. An incredible story well told. Could there be part 2 delving into more psychodynamics?
I love this post! History and psychodynamics can teach us so much. I had never heard of this event till this article. I especially loved the part about exploring dual identities about being both a soldier as well as a human.
