Book Synopsis

From the war-torn countryside of First-World War France to the snowy winter of tenth-century Bohemia, in the cozy comfort of Queen Victoria's Windsor Castle withdrawing-room and even at sea, the customs and songs of Christmas have played an integral role in European and colonial history.

This book, in the same large format as "The Armed Man" by the same author presents a selection of imaginative stories, drawn wherever possible from historical fact as the introduction to Christmas songs, some familiar, some less so.
