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.
