Australia at War 1914 - 1918 DVD

Film Australia

For Australia, the First World War was a social crisis as well as a military one. It was the first time Australians were required to fight on behalf of their own country.

This 1967 film from the National Film & Sound Archive examines the effects on Australia's national psyche. Making use of rare footage, it follows the campaigns all over the world, including footage of the horror of French trench warfare, extracts from film shot at Gallipoli and scenes of the colourful Baron Manfred von Richthofen, and the legendary Lawrence of Arabia.
