Shrine of Remembrance

Turning Disaster Into Triumph

Join Dr Ross McMullin for a special talk marking the centenary of the Battle of Polygon Wood.   

The battle of Polygon Wood, the second of the step-by-step victories east of Ypres, has often been depicted as a relatively straightforward victory: the AIF advanced behind an irresistible barrage that resembled a Gippsland bushfire, and there were inevitable casualties but no major hiccups. This interpretation is fundamentally flawed. Ross McMullin will explain why in a vivid and illuminating presentation on the centenary of the battle.  

Talk costs $5, bookings essential.
