‘Never Forget Australia’: Transformation at Villers-Bretonneux
With Ross McMullin
The immense German onslaught in March 1918 caused Britain’s gravest crisis of World War I. The Australians, rushed to the rescue in this climax of the conflict, were influencing the destiny of the world more than Australians have done in any other year before or since. The culmination of their vital contribution was the stunning counter-attack at Villers-Bretonneux in April 1918, which was acclaimed as the most brilliant feat of the war. To commemorate the centenary of this famous battle, award-winning historian Ross McMullin will illuminate the dramatic events. Ross McMullin’s new book is Pompey Elliott at War: In His Own Words.
