Fought on 8 August 1918, the Battle of Amiens was “the Black Day of the German Army” and marked the beginning of the end of fighting on the Western Front. Attacking alongside the Canadians south of the Somme River, the Australians helped to break through German lines and capture over 24 kilometres of territory in a single day. Historians consider it as one of the most significant actions fought by Australians during the First World War.
