How did the war impact the people back at home?

THE WAR HAD AN ENORMOUS IMPACT ON THE PEOPLE ON THE HOME FRONT! THEY WERE ALL SCARED BECAUSE OF HOW MANY CASULTIES (deaths and injuries) WHERE HAPPENING EVERY DAY! THEY WHERE WORRIED BECAUSE THE ENORMOUS DEATH TOLL GREW EVERYDAY, MANY WERE SCARED THERE HUSBANDS, BROTHERS AND SONS WOULD BE FORCED TO GO TO WAS DUE TO CONSCRIPTION (the governments way of forcing working men to go to war)

Why did Australians go to war?

WORLD WAR 1 WAS CAUSED BY THE ASSASINATION OF THE HEIR OF THE AUTRO-HUNGARIAN EMPIRE ARCHUDUKE FRANZ FERDINAND WAS ASSISINATED. AUSTRALIA WAS INVOLVED IN THE WAR BECAUSE WE WERE COLONIZED BY THE BRITISH. US AUSTRALIANS BELIEVED THAT IF ENGLAND FELL, WE ALSO WOULD FALL.
