Product Description
The first shots were fired at 11 a.m. on 19 July 1916. The Battle of Fromelles lasted less than 24 hours. When it was over, more than 5,000 Australian soldiers had been killed, wounded or taken prisoner  more soldiers died at Fromelles than in the Boer, Korean and Vietnam wars combined.

What was the point of this bloody loss of life?

And why, almost a century later, did the attention of the world once again turn to Fromelles?

The story of this battle, and the men who took part in it, is told with compassion and respect, without glorifying war. The weapons and tactics of World War I are explained, and though the story is told mainly from the point-of-view of the Australian soldiers, it is not forgotten that others were involved in this part of history  the British, the French peasants who lived in the area, and on the other side of the trenches, the Germans.
