Somme France - Pozieres Top Of The Windmill

The view from the top of the mound that is the Windmill. This marks the highest point of the Somme battlefield and there is a good view in every direction. The ploughed field between the Windmill and Pozieres was the location of the German OG1 and OG2 trenches. Many Australians died in this field in attempts to capture the Windmill.
