Where do I find accounts of soldiers NOT killing the enemy in spontaneous acts of remarkable compassion?

Does anyone have personal accounts/know of any documented accounts of soldiers fighting one another and then showing sudden, spontaneous, and probably court-martial-able acts of compassion? I was reading a moving testimony of a WWII British soldier who was about to be shot point blank by a German soldier who then shook his head, said something to the effect of "I can't do this" and let the guy go. Very touching stuff. Thanks.
