Music / Narration

Sit back and relax. Close your eyes and let the soothing voice of Graham Gould take you to the fields of Pozieres as the sounds of war invade your consciousness. The bullets fly and the shells fall as you follow in the footsteps of a 1st Division Gallipoli soldier, who finds himself doing battle once more in a foreign field where his mates fall beside him.
You will sense the savagery as the Pozieres village and the heights are won. It is a costly victory for the Australians, but the way forward is realised, as the Germans are pushed back for the first time.
It is a proud moment in our history, the like of which we will never see again. It is the beginning of the end of German domination on the Western Front.
