Australians in WW1

Throughout WW1 Australian troops had a massive impact on everything, including significant battles on the western front such as, Gallipoli, Fromelle and Somme. Thousands of young men gave their lives for the country they love, which had a massive impact on a country which was still only very young. ANZAC Day is significant to all Australians because it is a time to remember loved ones who gave their lives in many wars not just WW1 and for people who are still serving today.

Causes of WW1

there are many events which gradually led to the start of the war the main reason were the assassination of Archduke Franz ferdinand, as well as the growing alliances countries were making and countries wanted the land and resources that other countries have, which led to other countries seeking power and wealth.
