How Australia was involved
Australia's involvement in the Great War included the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force landing at Rabaul on 11 September 1914 and then taking possession of German New Guinea on 17th September 1914.
On 25 April 1915 ANZAC, Britain, and France landed at Gallipoli. This began a campaign that ended with the evacuation of troops on 19 and 20 December 1915.
In 1916 and 1917 losses on the Western Front were heavy and gains were small.
