It carries many different names, but regardless of your perspective on “The Great War”, the ramifications are immense.
More than 37 million people are thought to have died, gone missing or been casualties in the four and a half years of conflict. Showcasing the horrendous breadth of the battles, an extraordinary number – approaching 20 million – of those were civilians trapped either in the line of fire or, equally as troubling, by disease, famine and displacement as war efforts diverted attention and funds away from the practicalities of life.
There was action across Africa, the Middle-East southern and eastern Asia, Oceania and even into New Guinea and Australia. Yet the damage and heartache was felt even further afield with barely a family in the world untouched by tragedy. More than 100 countries played their part whether directly in battle, providing troops to distant empires or keeping up supplies to the war machines.
The Great War triggered revolutions, forged nations, bound some countries tightly while splitting others for generations and shifted borders. In short, it changed the world permanently and irrevocably.
THE CALL TO ARMS
As the days and months ticked by in Egypt, the troops became restless. Time away and training had honed their skills, and sentiments expressed in diaries suggested their increased appetite to use them. On 22 April and the two days following, orders were disseminated to the troops, along with battle provisions and ammunition. Almost nine months after Australia declared war, the stage was set for the battle that would help define the nation.
Lest we forget.
