1917 saw some of the heaviest fighting of the First World War, with Australian troops on the Western Front fighting at Bullecourt in France and Messines in Belgium. They were also engaged in the Third Battle of Ypres in September and October, where in eight weeks the Australians sustained over 36,000 casualties in the bloody fighting for Passchendaele.

Focusing on the events of 1917, this poster set features images from the Australian War Memorial's photographic collection.

Suitable for students of all ages, these posters make great visual reference tools.
