World War I by Cindy Dowling

Book Description

This was "the war to end all wars"; a conflict in which 155,000 Australian servicemen were wounded and over 60,000 died. Through the devastation it left behind, it changed the face of much of the Western world and laid the foundations for World War II. Yet this conflict, fought far from Australian shores, also saw the birth of the Anzac legend and led to the emergence of a true "Australian" identity. WORLD WAR I examines the vital role Australia played in the Allied forces and how the war became a turning point in the nation's development. This book is part of Exisle Publishing's Little Red Books series. Every title in the Little Red Books series provides an overview of key events, people or places in Australian history. They cover the essentials, bringing the reader up to speed on the most important, fascinating or intriguing facts. Appealing to everyone from students to pensioners who've always wanted to "know a bit about that", they're an essential part of every Australian bookshelf.
