Fromelles: Australia's Bloodiest Day at War

By Carole Wilkinson

**eBook Edition** Part of the award-winning series, The Drum, and by the multi-award-winning author Carole Wilkinson.

The Battle of Fromelles, a military operation during World War I, lasted less than 24 hours. When it was over, more than 5000 Australian soldiers were killed, wounded or taken prisoner. What was the point of this bloody loss of life? And why, almost a century later, did the attention of the world once again turn to Fromelles? Fromelles is an accessible non-fiction book for young adult readers by award-winning Australian author Carole Wilkinson. Part of the history series The Drum, it was short-listed for the 2012 Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Eve Pownall Award for Information Books. Carole is most well-known for the internationally bestselling Dragonkeeper series.
