Exhibition Launch of Australia's Field Marshal: The Leadership of Sir  Thomas Blamey

Exhibition Launch of Australia's Field Marshal: The Leadership of Sir Thomas Blamey

Speakers: Emeritus Professor David Horner AM and Ted Blamey Date: 26 July 2016 Detractors describe him as ruthless, self-seeking and egotistical and point to personal scandals, and the damaged careers of the many capable soldiers who stood in his way. Supporters speak of a man who understood, better than any other Australian leader, the wider nature of war—the political implications of action and inaction, the importance of sea and air power, of logistics, intelligence, and troop training. This exhibition will tell his story and let visitors make up their own mind. Australia's Field Marshal: Sir Thomas Blamey will be on display in the Galleries of Remembrance until mid 2017. Open daily 10am to 5pm, last entry to the Galleries at 4.30pm.
