PODCAST: Remembering the heroes of Hamel 100 years on, Stephen Dando-Collins, author

Stephen Dando - Collins, author

The Battle of Hamel is remembered for introducing tactics that dramatically turned the tide against the Germans and changed the way that war is fought. A story noted for its speed, tactics, bravery and the fact that for the first time in history American troops fought under Australian command.

In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, author Stephen Dando-Collins joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss this battle 100 years on, and to discuss his take on the events that took place and how he approached them when writing his book Heroes of Hamel.

Dando-Collins will discuss his family link to the war, why he chooses to do his own research and the experiences that he has had as a result.
