On War Lecture Series : AUSTRALIA IN THE MIDDLE EAST @ National Library of Australia

Professor Jeffrey Grey—Australia and the War with the Ottoman Empire, 1914–1919

In the Great War, Australian forces played an important role in the Middle East. The nature of that role is not well known and our understanding of it is fuelled by ‘Light Horse romanticism’. The effects of the break-up of the Ottoman Empire continue to be felt in the region to this day.
Join Jeffrey Grey, Professor of History at UNSW Canberra, as he explores Australia’s role in the Middle East.
In association with the Canberra Great War Study Group (‘the Estaminet’)

Tuesday 3 February, 5.30 pm
Conference Room, free
