The Battle of Fromelles - a brief summary of what is in the book

The battle of Fromelles opened at 1800 hours on 19 July 1916 when the Australian 5th Division, which had arrived from Egypt less than two weeks earlier, and the British 61st Division, attacked German positions to the north-east of the village.

Despite briefly entering and holding part of the German line the Australians were driven out by enemy counter-attacks and were back in their own lines the following day. The 5th Division lost some 5,500 men, the 61st about 1,500 and the Germans almost 2,000.
