Villers-Bretonneux - What Really Happened


Ross McMullin with MC Tim Shaw

In March 1918 the Germans launched an immense offensive that led to Britain’s gravest crisis of WWI. The Australians, rushed to the rescue in this climax of the conflict, were influencing the destiny of the world in 1918 more than in any other year before or since. The culmination of their important contribution was the celebrated counter-attack that recaptured the tactically vital town of Villers-Bretonneux. Ross McMullin’s illustrated presentation will illuminate the background context and tell the absorbing story of what happened (in contrast to what Prime Minister Turnbull incorrectly claimed in his centenary speeches).
