The battle for Villers Bretonneux - 24th & 25th April 1918

Battle for Villers Bretonneux

The battle to take the town of Villers Bretoneux from German hands in the early hours of the fourth Anzac Day – 25th April 1918.

Another one of Tex’s ‘no budget’ documentaries visited the Somme Valley and Villers Bretonneux in April 2008. This was the 90th anniversary of the great ‘take-back’ of the town from German forces. This clip briefly looks at the ground to the east and west of the town where the two ‘pincers’ of the battle were fought.
