On War: The Battle of Pozieres, talk by Dr Meleah Hampton

National Library of Australia – Sound Cloud
On War: The Battle of Pozieres

I came across this audio link in the latest enewsletter from the National Library and I thought it might be of interest.

In this presentation, Dr Meleah Hampton, Australian War Memorial historian, explores the allied efforts to capture the OG (Old German) trench line near Pozières, France, in 1916. This was among the most costly battles for Australians during the First World War.

This talk was given in association with the Canberra Great War Study Group, the Estaminet


While it hasn’t come on to my review bookshelf, Dr Meleah Hampton is the author of the recently-published book:


Attack on the Somme: 1st ANZAC Corps and the Battle of Pozieres Ridge, 1916.

The book is published by UK publisher Helion & Company
ISBN 9781910777657
