The 100th anniversary commemorations of the Great War are well underway. At this time, 100 years ago, Europe had been embroiled in a major war for over one and a half years. The war that many had believed would be over by Christmas had developed into a conflagration few could have anticipated. Join Apollo to commemorate the formation and tragic experience of the ‘Pals Battalions’ in Britain. The centenary of the year the Australians entered the war, in Gallipoli in 1915, has been and gone, and some of the most terrible battles of WW1 (notably the horrors of the Battle of the Somme) of 1916, in which the Canadians and Australians, together of course with the British, featured prominently, will be commemorated in 2016.
A battlefield travel guide company with a difference! For all history lovers – from individuals tracing family connections to World War One, to academic researchers and school groups looking to supercharge their history education on topics including WW1, WW2 and the Vietnam War. Have you been thinking about researching your personal links with this historic time and place?

Or is exploring the tunnels, battlegrounds and of Vietnam during the Vietnam War of interest?

Bring your university or college history curriculum to life with Apollo. What better history classroom could there be than out "in the field"? We can help you design a battlefield tour that not only takes in all of the historic sites and events along the Western Front, but also develops the student 'as historian'. We can work with lecturers/teachers to develop an inclusive, student-centred program. Apollo specialises in tours to suit undergraduate, postgraduate and pre-service teachers. In addition, we can design high school tours to suit Australian Curriculum requirements.
