Event description

Description

Meet and hear Peter FitzSimons as he brings to life the story of the battle of Le Hamel - the Allied triumph masterminded by Australian commander Sir John Monash, whose strategies became the blueprint for modern warfare. The Battle of Le Hamel on 4 July 1918 was an Allied triumph, and strategically very important in the closing stages of WWI. What happened in the 93 minute battle changed for the rest of the war the way the British fought battles, and the tactics and strategies used by the Allies. Peter FitzSimons brings this Allied triumph to life, and tells this magnificent story as it should be told.
