Stunningly illustrated in over 70 paintings, The Poppy is the true story of one of Australia's greatest victories, and of a promise kept for nearly a century.
On Anzac Day, 1918, a desperate night counter-attack in the French village of Villers-Bretonneux became one of Australia's greatest victories. A bond was forged that night between France and Australia that has never been broken.
Villers-Bretonneux is `The town that never forgets'. What was achieved that terrible night - and what happened after - is a story that, likewise, Australians should never forget.
