' The Australian Victories in France in 1918  ' by John Monash. 1918 was a great period of success for the five divisions of the newly formed ‘Australian Corps’. From May 1918, they had been under the command of an Australian, Lieutenant General John Monash.
Monash was knighted at his headquarters at the Chateau de Bertangles after the British
success at the Battle of Amiens in August 1918, and he later wrote this influential
book on his experiences. The major victories are listed as Defence of Amiens
Dernancourt Villers-Bretonneux Battle of Hamel Battle of Mont St Quentin Battle
of Hindenburg Line Mountbrehain.
In June 1918 he was promoted to Lieutenant-General and appointed to command
the Australian Corps in France. He led his Australians through a series of victorious
actions until the end of the war. He is the greatest soldier Australia has ever
bred and at the time was regarded as a military tactical genius. At no time
before or after WW1 has Australia ever held such prominence or power on the
world stage as it did at the end of WW1.
We thank Monash and the AIF for this achievement -may their memory not be forgotten.
