Cost of Attrition
This July, to mark the centenary of several pivotal events of the First World War, the Australian War Memorial will convene the conference 1916: the cost of attrition, bringing together internationally renowned historians from Australia and abroad. Presenting a range of perspectives on many aspects of the Great War in 1916, discussions will range from political and strategic dimensions to the command and conduct of military operations, soldiers’ experiences, and the clashes and convergences of historical interpretations.
Held in the BAE Systems Theatre at the Australian War Memorial from Wednesday 20 to Friday 22 July, 1916: the cost of attrition promises lively and engaging debate on the significant events that shaped the twentieth century and continue to influence our modern world.
