Event description

Description

Join historian and author of 20 books Susanna De Vries, and journalist and Australian military historian Philip Castle, for a special event marking the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux.

Susanna and Philip will delve into the diaries of Sister Florence James-Wallace, a heroic ANZAC nurse from Brisbane who worked around the clock in Villers-Bretonnuex during March 1918 to care for thousands of wounded men. They will also explore the major battles at Villers-Bretonneux in April 1918 which saw Australian soldiers defend Amiens and Paris, turning the German offensive into a general retreat leading to the Armistice.
