Precipitated by the detonation of 19 enormous mines under the German front lines (made famous in the Australian feature film Beneath Hill 60), the Battle of Messines has historical significance for the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) as it was the first time that the 3rd Australian Division saw service on the Western Front.

Excess in the Anzac centenary overlooks other military endeavours | Yr 9 History. Australians at War. Significant events and the experiences of Australians in World War 1. ACDSEH108 | Scoop.it
Beyond the crass commercialisation, this extravaganza perpetuates a myth that undercuts the work of modern soldiers.
Lake Munmorah High School Library's insight:
