ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
In Holding the Line, David Cameron tells the extraordinary story of Australian troops at Villers-Bretonneux in World War I. The Anzacs had one of their greatest victories at Villers-Bretonneux, defeating the Germans there in an attack later described by a British general as 'perhaps the greatest individual feat of the war'.
As part of the German Spring Offensive on the Western Front, German forces captured the town of Villers-Bretonneux, near Amiens, from exhausted British defenders on 24 April 1918. The Australian 13th and 15th Brigades were brought forward and, in a model of a well-planned and co-ordinated night attack, successfully recaptured the town. It was a bloody victory - 1200 Australians lost their lives - but this battle marked the end of the German offensive on the Somme and contributed to the Allies' eventual victory. As with his previous books, Cameron places the reader right in the action by weaving vivid minute-by-minute descriptions drawn from the diaries and letters of soldiers who were there.
