'Brothers in Arms: Breaking the Hindenburg Line' a talk by Clive Harris
08 Dec

On 29 September 1918 a force of British, Australian and US Troops attempted to break the Hindenburg Line between Bellicourt and Bony. Despite sharing doctrine and fighting over similar ground against the same enemy, each of allied armies experienced very different days.

Clive will examine the reasons behind such polar opposite battles by considering the tactical, operational and cultural differences existing in the Australian Corps, US II Corps and the 46th (North Midland) Division during what became regarded as one of the most significant days of the Great War.

Refreshments are served after the talk, which enables visitors to prepare for the question and answer session, which are always interesting and draw out further details from the presentation.

Members and non-members of The Western Front Association are equally welcome. Any new visitors are guaranteed a friendly atmosphere and a warm welcome from a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
