Dr Ross McMullin author of Pompey Elliott and Farewell, Dear People speaks about 'Australia in World War 1, centenary reflections'.

Was Gallipoli the making of our nation, as many Australians seem to believe?

With the centenary of the Gallipoli campaign imminent, Ross McMullin, an award-winning biographer and acclaimed historian of Australia in World War I, will provide an interesting commentary. An experienced and entertaining speaker, Dr McMullin will highlight little-known consequences of our involvement in the war, illuminate the forgotten stories he has retrieved of exceptional Australians who died in the conflict, and examine aspects of our commemoration of the centenary.
