The Western Front was the name given to the trenches that were dug between the coast of Belgium and the Swiss border. It was here that our Anzac's helped fight the German's in muddy, cold and horrific conditions. The sound of artillery shells was a constant companion as one in two Anzac soldiers was a casualty of the Somme battlefields.
Whilst we read how our countrymen fought with courage and determination you need to visit these revered landmarks to see the scars of battle and learn about the conditions our brave soldiers faced.Our travel tours of the Western Front give an excellent understanding of WWI battlefield history.
