In April the Australians attacked the heavily fortified village of Bullecourt, on the Hindenburg Line. The result was a debacle. The failure of the tanks to get forward left the Australians with bitter feelings about this new weapon and doubtful of its value. Further attacks in May drew three more Australian divisions into an intense two-week struggle for the village. Finally, Bullecourt was taken, but no further advance was possible. In all, the battles cost over 10,000 Australian casualties.
