It’s early 1918, and after four brutal years, the fate of the Great War hangs in the balance. In desperation, the British commander, General Douglas Haig, calls upon the Australian soldiers to stop the German advance, and save Villers-Bretonneux. If the Australians can hold this, then the Germans will not win the war.
Not for nothing does the primary school at Villers-Bretonneux have above every blackboard, to this day, 'N’oublions jamais, l’Australie.' Never forget Australia.
Peter FitzSimons will be signing books after his talk. His book will be available to purchase at the event.
