Fromelles and Pozi—êres: In the Trenches of Hell

September 4, 2016 @ 3:30 am - 5:30 am

On 19 July 1916, 7,000 Australian soldiers – in the first major action of the AIF on the Western Front – attacked entrenched German positions at Fromelles in northern France.
By the next day, there were over 5,500 casualties, including nearly 2,000 dead.

Yet the sad truth is that, nearly a century on from those battles, Australians know only a fraction of what occurred.

With his extraordinary vigour and commitment to research, Peter FitzSimons shows why this is a story about which all Australians can be proud. And angry.
