Villers-Bretonneux was the key to the strategically important communications centre of Amiens, a principal objective of the German offensive that began in March 1918.
Until the Germans took the town, Amiens would remain beyond their grasp.
The successful defence of Villers-Bretonneux has come to be regarded as an Australian battle but British formations were heavily involved as well.
