Our Corner of the Somme: Australia at Villers-Bretonneux

By the time of the Armistice, Villers-Bretonneux – once a lively and flourishing French town – had been largely destroyed, and half its population had fled or died. From March to August 1918, Villers-Bretonneux formed part of an active front line, at which Australian troops were heavily involved. Romain Fathi discusses the memorialisation of Australia’s role on the Western Front and the Anzac mythology that so heavily contributes to Australians’ understanding of themselves.
