WHAT CAUSED WORLD WAR 1?
Another big cause was fear. The countries kept making alliances, which intimidated the other countries. There was the Triple Entente, which included France, Britain and Russia, and the Triple Alliance between Germany, Austria Hungary and Italy.
Nationalism and imperialism also was a big contributor to World War 1, each of the countries believing that their ways of life were better than everyone else's.
The first major role that Australia played in war was the landing at Gallipoli on the 25th of April, 1915. Their aim was to gain control of the Gallipoli Peninsula. By doing this, they would have control of the Dardanelles. meaning they would be able to ship supplies to one of the allies, Russia. From the moment the Anzacs landed at Gallipoli, it was a failure. For one thing, they arrived at the wrong spot, and were not expecting the turks to have all those machine guns pointing straight at them. The land they arrived at was also unexpected. They were surrounded by steep cliffs, giving the enemy a good, clear shot at them. Though everything about this campaign was a failure, it is where the Anzac legend comes from. Not from how well they fought, but for their bravery. Even after seeing their friends get shot down in front of them like in the battle of the Nek, the Anzacs didn't fail to follow orders and fought to the very last minute. They left Gallipoli in December, 1915. Nothing was gained from this campaign.
