RAHS Seniors Festival Lecture – Pompey Elliott at War: In his own words

April 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

RAHS Special LecturePompey Elliott was Australia’s most famous fighting general in World War I. With Ross McMullin’s new book, Pompey has also become the creator of the most riveting Australian personal narrative of that conflict. What he wrote and said during WWI was extraordinarily frank, forthright, controversial and emotional. No Australian general was more revered by those he led or more renowned outside his own command.

About the speaker: Dr Ross McMullin is an award-winning historian and biographer, and a lively and entertaining speaker. His biographies include Pompey Elliott and Will Dyson: Australia’s Radical Genius. His previous book, Farewell, Dear People: Biographies of Australia’s Lost Generation, was awarded the Prime Minister’s Prize for Australian History.
