OFFICIAL HISTORY OF AUSTRALIA IN THE WAR OF 1914-1918 Volume IV – The Australian Imperial Force in France: 1917


Volume four of this momentous Official History opens with the plans for the next twelve months, after the terrible losses at Fromelles and on the Somme in 1916. But these plans were set back after the extensive German evacuation that saw them entrench themselves behind well-prepared defences, which for the rest of 1917 the allies attacked, with very little real success.
