Summary
A captivating step back in time, Pozieres explores the small village in Northern France which, during the Great War in 1916, was the setting of one of the bloodiest battles in history, a twentieth century tragedy. The village was stormed and captured by Australians and became key to the success of the Battle for the Somme. But in less than seven weeks they suffered twenty three thousand casualties for this tiny patch of otherwise peaceful earth. Throughout history many have been both touched and haunted in some way by this village. A thoroughly researched and thought-provoking presentation, Pozieres investigates the circumstances and surrounds, the soldiers in the fields and trenches, railway carriages in Egypt and the Australian bush, piecing together the story of a place that is, according to historian Charles Bean, <U+0147> more densely sown with Australian sacrifice than any other place on earth.<U+0148>
