"I'm Will, Private William Goddard. I'm the first person in my family who has ever been a soldier, the first to fight for my country. "Four months ago I'd never even left Suffolk. I was a farm boy, and me and my brothers worked in the field everyday, and every weekend we'd play football, as did all the older boys in the village. That's Lacey, he's my older brother, and that's our cousin Freddie. He's a bit mad. He's a good goalie though. And now, we're all here, in France, helping to fight the Germans. They're over there, just past the barbed wire. "I've seen some strange things in this odd place. The whole world gone topsy-turvy. The strangest thing of all happened on Christmas day…" From the Executive Producer of "The Snowman", the Director of "Father Christmas", and from award-winning author Michael Foreman, "War Game" tells the moving story of the infamous Christmas truce of 1914, seen through the bewildered eyes of young innocent friends, whose only concern before duty's call had been for their beloved village football team. War Game is a powerful yet moving story that tells of the heartache of war and of an innocence lost. Beautifully drawn, this animated masterpiece is compelling viewing for all the family.
