A village in northern France, near Amiens and Abbeville, that was completely destroyed during World War One. Australian forces led the two Battles of Bullecourt, suffering catastrophic losses. Nigel fights at Bullecourt and watches his whole unit die after he is sent out for reconnaissance (because he is the only Aboriginal soldier and reconnaissance is a dangerous mission). He then gets captured by the Germans and taken to the Zössen POW Camp.
