Beaten Down by Blood - ANZAC Centenary Commemorative Release: The Battle of Mont St Quentin-Peronne 1918

Author(s): Michele Bomford

Military

Beaten Down by Blood: The Battle of Mont St Quentin-Peronne 1918 charts an extraordinary journey from the trenches facing Mont St Quentin on 31 August 1918 through the frenetic phases of the battle until the final objectives are taken on 5 September. This is the story, often told in the words of the men themselves, of the capture of the 'unattackable' Mont and the 'invincible' fortress town of Peronne, two of the great feats of Australian forces in the First World War. The Author places real men on the battlefield, describing their fears and their courage and their often violent deaths. The struggle for control of the battle, to site the guns, to bridge the Somme and maintain communications is portrayed in vivid detail. The story also offers a glimpse of the men's families at home, their anxiety and their lifelong grief.
