The History Press UK 2010. Card covers 239pp b&w plates. Near fine. At Fromelles in July 1916, two divisions - one British and the Australian 5th Division AIF - within a few weeks of arriving in France - went into action for the first time. Their task was to prevent the Germans from moving troops to the Somme where a major British offensive was in progress but the attack on 19/20 July was a disaster with 7000 casualties in a few hours. This account explores this battle which for many epitomises the futility of the Great War. In those few hours many heroic deeds were done but the battle caused a souring of Anglo-Australian relationships and truly was a baptism of fire for these British and Australian troops. This is their history. NOTE: Originally published in 2007 but in this edition Cobb has explored the discovery in 2008 and 2009 of a mass war grave on the battlefield and includes details of the findings of the archaeological dig, the recovery of 250 bodies and the creation of a new military cemetery.
