Previously unseen accounts of the First World War Christmas Day truce from the German side have come to light over 100 years on.<br />
<br />
British historian Anthony Richards has pored over hundreds of German diaries to shed new light on the temporary ceasefire in 1914.<br />
<br />
The fascinating accounts include one by a soldier who described the truce as a 'miracle' and called enemy troops his 'brothers'.
