Sabaton release animated story video for “The Christmas Truce”

Not content with a brilliant dramatic video for their seasonal single (which made our Advent list), Sabaton have followed it with an animated one which tells the story behind the song. The new video was produced by Yarnhub who also created the animated story videos of No Bullets Fly and Night Witches.

It’s December 24th 1914 in the middle of a cold night. After 6 months in the muddy trenches, the war still hasn’t come to an end and soldiers are missing home more than ever before. So they begin quietly singing carols. Although an official truce has been declined by the governments, an eerie silence haunted the empty battlefields on the morning of December 25th. Slowly, British and German soldiers crawl out of their tranches to wish each other a Merry Christmas, take photographs, play games, and even exchange a few gifts.
