Australia Goes to War
As a dominion of the British Empire, it was inevitable for Australia to be drawn into the First World War. This video explores Australian attitudes towards enlistment during WWI and how these changed over the course of the war. Students will also learn about the experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander soldiers and understand how public opinion affected Australian participation in the war effort.
Australian Experience of WWI
Supporting Great Britain in the Great War meant that Australian troops fought on many battlefields around the globe between 1914 and 1918. This video looks at the theatres of war in which Australian soldiers fought and the conditions they endured there, such as trench warfare. Students will learn about the differences in the nature of warfare in various battles, including Gallipoli, the Western Front and Palestine.
The Gallipoli campaign was one of the most significant events of World War I for Australian troops. This video introduces the events of the Gallipoli invasion and how the actions of the soldiers there have contributed to the lasting legacy of the ANZACs. Students will learn about what happened at Gallipoli, from the initial landing to major events such as the August Offensive, and the final evacuation and retreat.
