Ross McMullin at Ballarat Library

This week we are fortunate to have Ross McMullin at the Ballarat Library on Thursday evening at 6pm, to talk about his latest book Pompey Elliott at War : in his own words.

This enthralling new book about Australia’s most famous fighting general, whose brilliant and vigorous leadership was crucial in iconic Australian triumphs such as Villers-Bretonneux and Polygon Wood.  He was a Ballarat resident when young, attending Ballarat College, and he remained very fond of the city.

Pompey’s letters and diaries were extraordinarily frank and forthright, and he expressed
himself vividly, writing rapidly and fluently with an
engaging turn of phrase.

Ross McMullin is an award-winning biographer and an entertaining speaker.  Do join us at Ballarat Library at 6pm on Thursday November 9th as Ross brings Pompey to life.   This promises to be a riveting event, book your place early!
