In 1914, the war which was to have been wrapped up by Christmas had - in reality - only just begun, as all sides entrenched themselves deeper into the Great War. Christmas Eve, 1914 follows one company of British officers as they rotate forward to spend their Christmas on the front lines, a mere 80 yards from the German guns. Upper- and working-class men and boys are thrown together into one trench and struggle to survive.

This is the first Audible book I chose for my new account. Although a short story it was filled with a full and moving tale that had me in tears at the end. The word hope has stuck with me. I will surely listen to this again as I master the art of listening to books.
