General documents WWI Christmas Truce

Passed along in email:

A letter documenting the day when British and German troops laid down their arms, exchanged gifts and played a game of soccer at Christmas in 1914 has been uncovered in England.
The letter, written from the trenches in France by a high-ranking British general to his wife, has been made public to mark the centenary of the truce.
