A FREE New Christmas Story: “Christmas in the Trenches, 1914”

Merry Christmas, everyone! To celebrate I’ve published a brand new Christmas story to add to your Christmas reading list: “Christmas in the Trenches, 1914.”

It’s completely FREE on Smashwords. In addition, I’ve added a couple short Christmas dramatic readings to it as well, plus some other goodies.

Please pick yourself up a copy and I hope you enjoy. FREE CHRISTMAS STORY HERE!

Here’s the synopsis: Christmas Eve, 1914. Young Private O’Malley, staring over the crest of a trench deep in the heart of France, regales his comrades with nostalgic images of home as he describes his parents’ Christmas preparations back in Brighton. But when a curious group of German soldiers singing Silent Night step out of the trenches and approach the British line of defense, O’Malley and his mates have to decide if there’s enough Christmas magic in the air which would allow the weary soldiers a brief respite from the ravages of war on the holiest of nights.

  1. Beautifully written short story. I’ve often wondered what would have been going through the soldiers’ heads when they went over the top on that Christmas Eve to play football. A really good imagination of it, choked me up a little. Thanks for the story 🙂
