In WW1, Australian troops entered the trenches of France and Belgium. Three years later over 46,000 were dead.
In April 1918, the Germans threatened the vital rail hub in Amiens, in northern France, and capture the village of Villers-Bretonneux.
On the 24/25th April 1918 Australian and British troops halted the advance, and forced a German withdrawal. Amiens was saved!.
-"This boutique escorted tour is all about retracing this crucial part of European history and the ANZAC contribution and sacrifices".
