Description

This is a definitive history of the Battle of Fromelles, a revised edition of the previously self-published and much acclaimed history of the battle. Fromelles is a small town west of Lille, France's fourth largest city. It is also the site of the first Australian Imperial Force (AIF) action in France in World War I. The Battle of Fromelles (19-20 July, 1916) was a disaster from a military planning perspective - the Germans had the high ground and knew in advance that the attack would take place. Despite this, Australian Major-General McCay, a man obsessed with ambition and glory, continued with the attack. The recent discovery of a mass grave near the site of the battle has brought Fromelles into sharp focus and renewed interest in this book.show more
