Battle of Fromelles - 19 July 2012

Battle of Fromelles - 19 July 2012

Dr Peter Pederson. Much has been written, particularly in recent years, about the costly attack at Fromelles on 19 July 1916. If some have called it the forgotten battle, an epithet which was never really merited, they can hardly do so now. This talk will analyse various facets of the planning and execution of the attack and set them within the context of the tactical doctrine that guided the operations of the British Expeditionary Force at the time.
