Tom Keneally Centre Reading

The Battle of Fromelles in July 1916 was the worst military disaster in Australian history. The battle raged for 14 hours and was a staggering disaster, resulting in over 5500 Australian casualties. Many of the bodies lay undiscovered for many decades.

Peter Barton, acclaimed historian and documentary film-maker, has spent a decade researching the story of the battle and can now reveal that Fromelles did not, in fact, unfold the way we have for so long been led to believe.
