"The text is clear and lyrical. Sorensen's beautiful double-page
spreads in sepia shades show the young men from the two sides
celebrating together-with individuals just like them. Lengthy notes
fill in the history and present an impassioned call for peace."
"Sorensen's atmospheric oil paintings bring the miraculous night of peace to life with a wide, double-page spread that allows room to show many soldiers at once as well as the expanse of the battlefield." -Kirkus Reviews
