The causes of World War 1...

World War 1 was a military conflict lasting from 1914 to 1918 which involved nearly all the biggest powers of the world. It involved two opposing alliances - the Allies and the Central Powers. The countries of the Allies included Russia, France, British Empire, Italy, United States, Japan, Rumania, Serbia, Belgium, Greece, Portugal and Montenegro. The countries of the Central Powers included Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey and Bulgaria.


The MAIN causes were

Militarism- the belief that a country should maintain a strong military capability and be prepared to use it aggressively to defend or promote national interests.

Alliance- An alliance is an agreement made between two or more countries to give each other help if it is needed. When an alliance is signed, those countries become known as Allies. These were important because they meant that some countries had no option but to declare war if one of their allies declared war first.

Imperialism- Imperialism is when a country takes over new lands or countries and makes them subject to their rule.

Nationalism- Nationalism means being a strong supporter of the rights and interests of one's country, and that they will fight for there country and there country only.

= M.A.I.N= Militarism, Alliance, Imperialism, Nationalism

Australian Involvement in World War 1...

When Britain declared war in 1914 it declared war on behalf of the entire British Empire, and that included Australia. Australia became involved in World War 1 in August 1914as Britain was preparing to declare war on Germany. At the time Andrew Fisher (future Australian prime minister) promised that Australia would stand behind their mother country. He believed this war to be a noble cause where Australians could demonstrate their loyalty.

Australia became involved in World War 1 for three main reasons. Firstly, although they were known a nation of its own, they still held close ties to the 'mother country', Britain. Secondly, if Australia became involved, other countries would have a greater respect for the diminutive new nation. Thirdly, at the time Andrew Fisher promised that Australia would stand behind their mother country. He believed this war to be a noble cause where Australians could demonstrate their loyalty.
When the Britians entered the first world war they called for help as they had not much of an army. India, Canada and Australia came to their aid. India supplied over a million troops.

The Australian impact on the World War 1...

Much of the Australian economy, government and society in general was transformed in World War I. Women had to replace men in the work, but were not paid reasonably.Food shortages were not as much as a problem in Australia as is in many parts of Europe. Their price only raised by around 32%. The Australian Agricultural sector earned much money, as Britain bought much of their wheat as part of their war effort. However, the impact of the war only became much more apparent when the soldiers returned, with many losses for a country with a relatively small population. Household violence was more common, as well as drunkenness.

The significance of ANZAC Day for Australians

A.N.Z.A.C Day is for the remembrance of the commence of world war 1, and it is not to celebrate war, but to honor, show respect and remember (lest we forget) the soldiers that gave their lives for the welfare of Australia and New Zealand as nations. It particularly relates to the ANZACs who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during WW1.
