PODCAST: The battle of Le Hamel and the 93 minutes that changed the world, Peter FitzSimons, author

Peter Fitzsimons, Author

The Battle of Le Hamel on 4 July 1918 was an Allied triumph, and strategically very important in the closing stages of WWI. A largely Australian force, commanded by Sir John Monash, fought what has been described as the first modern battle - where infantry, tanks, artillery and planes operated together as a co-ordinated force with every detail planned meticulously.



In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, author Peter FitzSimons joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss this moment in military history, looking not only at the events that took place but the thought processes behind every aspect that lead to the development of these events.

FitzSimons will also discuss his writing process and how the fine detail and extensive research is key to telling the stories of these monumental moments in history, share how his literature is a means of helping the characters who lost their lives live and breathe once more, and take on claims that his writing is a glorification of war.
