Australian troops counter-attack at Amiens, WW1 Featured Print

Australian troops counter-attack at Amiens, WW1

Australian troops hold the line at Villers Bretonneux nine miles east of Amiens during a German attack during the Battle of Amiens in April 1918. The image was an accurate impression by Sphere special artist, Fortunino Matania, having been reconstructed with the help of eyewitness accounts and official material. In the foreground, an infantryman, his rifle slung over his shoulder, takes over a Lewis Gun whose crew had been put out of action. Behind that can be seen another soldier hitting a German with his tin helmet (having already strangled another with his bare hands) while a third German attempts to flee down a railway cutting but is stopped by the gun fire of the Australian officer's batman. Date: 1919

The Battle of Majuba Hill Featured Print

The Battle of Majuba Hill

The Transvaal War: the Battle of Majuba Hill. Majuba Hill was the main battle of the First Boer War, and one which the British resoundingly lost. The officer to the left with binoculars is General Sir George Colley, commanding officer, who was killed by Boer marksmen; to facilitate his ascent of the hill (says the ILN), he took off his boots and during the fighting wore only socks and slippers; the officer in the foreground to whom the doctor is offering a flask is Major L C Singleton of the 92nd Gordon Highlanders who died of his wounds. The figure on the extreme left is J A Cameron, Special Correspondent of the Standard. Date: 27th February 1881

How WWI was fought Featured Print

How WWI was fought

"As it is for most of us" World War I was a slog, described by many as "90% routine and 10% terror." Although soldiers lived with death every day, for the most part, major battles were few and far between, and sometimes it was the dread and anticipation of what was to come that was most psychologically damaging, especially for inexperienced new recruits. When an offensive did come, nobody could predict the ferocity or the outcome. Despite commanders hopes that attacks might take place in an orderly formation, most were a chaotic scrum of noise, smoke, screams and shell fire, as summed up by Bairnsfather's loose, vigorous penmanship. Date: 1916
