I'm not quite sure. I do know that if it had lasted, the developments of planes and tanks would be a hell of a lot different.

By 'false truce' are you referring to the unofficial and very temporary truce of Christmas 1914? If so, the fighting was always going to recommence. Military discipline on all sides was very strong at that stage of the war and would have withstood any attempted mutiny or insurrection. Only by 1917 was a more radical mood spreading throughout the combatant nations.
Hope this is what you're referring to. :)

That's why it was eliminated as a practice by WWII. Generals don't want their soldiers becoming friends with the enemy, because then the war can't continue.

Yeah in 1895 soldiers unions finally achieved that they would not have to fight for more than 10 hours/day, have 30 days of paid holidays/year that they could take any time they wanted and certain holidays would be so called "no-fight-times". These were mainly christian holidays because of the cultural environment where the negotiations took place.

Don't forget the disability insurance that they were now able to purchase through their union halls, and the retirement plan.
