Conflict First World War, 1914-1918

After the evacuation from the Gallipoli Peninsula at the end of 1915 the AIF returned to Egypt where it was reorganised into two corps, I and II Anzac. By mid-1916 both Corps had arrived on the Western Front where operations on the Somme were about to begin. In Volume III of the Official History, C.E.W. Bean describes the major Australian contribution to the Somme Campaign, destined to be its worst ordeal of the war.
