The Battle of Mont St Quentin-Peronne 1918 explores the relationship between myth and history and the significance of the Anzac legend. It analyses the forces that drove the diggers forward even when they had reached the limits of their endurance. The Battle of Mont St Quentin-P?ronne represents the Australian Corps at its very best, its diggers fighting for peace and satisfied that, `whatever might lie ahead, at least everything was right behind them'.
