The causes of World War 1

The trigger of the Great War was the assassination of the heir to the Austro-Hungary throne Arch-duke Franz Ferdinand, he was killed by Gavrilo Princip a Serbian who had recieved his gun, ammo and military training from Serbia.

The Australian involvement in the war

Australia being part of the British Empire we were at war when Britian was at war, Britian declared war on Germany on 4 August 1914. Australia fought in several theatres of war such as on land, in the sea and in the air. Gallipoli, Australia was part of Britains fail attempt to invade Turkey through the entry point of the Gallipoli Peninsula. After 7 months of fighting against the Turkish troops, withdrawal of the troops began as the British Command realised that it would be impossible to win. Australia on 1 July 1916 moved to the western front to fight at Fromelles, north of Somme where France and Britian were fighting Germany. In April 1917 the Australians were sent to fight Germany at Bullecourt, in May Bullecourt was captured but at great loss. In July 1918 Australia made its first allied attack on Viller-Bretonneux. In November 11 1918 the war was over and Australia had suffered more casualities to their proportion than any other country.

The impact of the Great War on Australians at home

The Australians that were left back also had a difficult time, with a high proportion of the men gone the women had to take care of the their families, provide them with food and shelter. The children would make clothes and help their mother's prepare food. The Australians that were left behind, had no idea if there husbands, mates, uncles, dads, brothers or grandads were still alive, as of the government restricting what the press wrote. The government would go also through messages and black out any unwanted sentences, so the people back at home weren't finding out what the war was really like. The war did provoke more equal rights between men and women, so thats something good that came out of the war.

The significance of ANZAC Day for Australians

The significance of ANZAC Day to Australians is that it is the one day of the year that all Australians can congregate together and reflect on their passing parents, grandparents and great grandparents. Also to think about the struggles they went through and the risks they took to keep Australia safe.
