 BATTLEGROUND EUROPE Hamel Somme' by Dr Peter Pedersen.
In May 1918, Lt General Sir John Monash took command
of the Australian Imperial Force. It was a momentous occasion because the whole
of the AIF had longed to be together under their own senior commander. Only
three weeks after Monash took control he put forward a plan for the capture
of the German front line centred on the french village of Hamel. Using 7000
Australian troops, fewer than 3000 of them frontline soldiers and some newly
arrived Americans , Monash planned for a 90 minute Battle. Monash succeeded
in capturing Hamel on 4th July 1918 the battle lasted just 93 minutes. An amazingly
brief period. Monash's success greatly affected the military thinking of the
Allied High Command. Hamel was the turning point of the war. From that point
the Australians with their Canadian comrades, launched on the 8 August 1918
the Battle of Amiens the great offensive that was to bring the war to a victorious
end. General Ludendorff, the German commander, famously called ‘the black day
of the German Army'
