THE GREAT WAR IN EUROPE 1916-1918 - "IN THE ANZACS FOOTSTEPS"
When The Great War (World War 1) came to an end in 1918 Australia and New Zealand were left to come to terms with a war which, on the Western Front alone, had cost Australia 46,000 dead. Around 12,000 New Zealanders died on the Western Front in two and a half years fighting. In the case of both countries, this was more than in the entire Second World War.
Militarily, the ANZAC reputation stood high at the end of the war and along with the Canadians, they were regarded as among the best fighting troops in the British Expeditionary Force. On this special 'ANZAC FOOTSTEPS TOUR' tour we follow in their footsteps to the places where the ANZAC reputation was established in Europe between 1916 and 1918. Along the way we shall hear tales of courage, endurance and sacrifice that will both inspire and humble.
The tour will start and finish in Lille - other end locations can be arranged.
