Monthly Luncheon with Dr Ross McMullin
11 November, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
This iconic Australian battle, which was especially significant for Victorians, has been fundamentally misinterpreted. It has been routinely depicted as a basically straightforward affair, but it was not like that at all. When the real story is understood, the Australian achievement at Polygon Wood can be properly appreciated. Ross McMullin will explain all in another of his vivid and illuminating Remembrance Day presentations for Graduate House.
Dr McMullin is an acclaimed historian and an entertaining speaker. His books include Pompey Elliott, which won awards for biography and literature, and Farewell, Dear People: Biographies of Australia’s Lost Generation, which was awarded the Prime Minister’s Prize for Australian History and the National Cultural Award. His latest book is Pompey Elliott at War: In His Own Words.
The November Monthly Luncheon will be a hybrid event, subject to the easing of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions:
- lunch and guest speaker at Graduate House, commencing at 12:30PM; or
- online only for guest speaker via Zoom, commencing at 1:15PM.
