OFFICIAL HISTORY OF AUSTRALIA IN THE WAR OF 1914-1918 Volume V – The Australian Imperial Force in France: December 1917–May 1918
In volume five we see Australian troops fighting better and with more telling effect in a decisive period of military history. The great German offensive of March-April 1918 saw important battles for the Australian forces that were fought around Amiens and Hazelbrouck in the spring of 1918. By the end of April, despite huge casualties, the 2nd, 3rd and 5th Divisions were holding half the crucial front from Arras in the north to Amiens in the south-east.
