Remembering World War 1

This poster used during the World War 1 in Australia uses Australia’s national animal, the Kangaroo to represent the country that they are talking about and to reference the text in the Poster; “Australia has promised Britain”. Using colours that work together, the red in the background with the black figures in a war zone stands out as shadows and can be interpreted as soldiers in a war (which is what is being asked, that men join and become a soldier), the multiple small figures showing how many soldiers will be needed. Using large bold fonts to attract the readers’ attention, in white “50,000 MORE MEN WILL YOU HELP US KEEP THAT PROMISE”, stands out and can be read at first glance, catching a readers eye.
The way that this text is written, it has a sense of sympathy in it, “Australia has promised Britain 50,000 MORE MEN WILL YOU HELP US KEEP THAT PROMSIE” Asking Australians to help keep the promise that Australia has made, almost as if you made the promise yourself, makes you feel a sense of responsibility, engaging you into joining the army.
Using a call to action, it is encouraging the men of Australia to join, almost as if giving the men demands to follow.

Letter home about Gallipoli landing
To dearest family,
For since my last letter, I was in training, but as of now, I am in Gallipoli, Turkey, though it sounds easy the journey was anything but that. The aim was to take out the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) and establish a supply line from the Mediterranean through to Russia, having to encounter Turkish Water.
Upon landing on the Gallipoli Peninsula on April the 25th, we came faced with the issue of cliffs up to 100m high and resilience from barricades of Turks. Climbing those cliffs are nothing like what training taught us, soldiers around you, getting injured and losing their balance, the wails and whimpers of the man as the fall to their agony and fate with the simple "thud". All of this, its so traumatizing. During this landing we have lost more then 600 Australians, we were ordered by the British Commander of the Campaign, General Sir Ian Hamilton, to "dig, dig until you are safe'.
Be safe my dearest till we hear from each other again.
Much Love,

"WW1 would have happened regardless or whether or not the Archduke was assassinated"
Before the Archduke and his wife Sophia was assassinated, in between colonies, they had already experienced political dysfunction. World war 1 was bound to happen because of a number of factors. The main factors were, nationalism units or divides the people, lots of small Germanic kingdoms formed the German Empire because of the feelings of nationalism they had, and also lead to a cooperation between Germany and Austria-Hungary. When Bosnia-Herzegovina switched sides from the Triple Alliance to the Triple Entente with the help of Russia. The Austro-Hungarian Empire could have retaliated, starting the war because Bosnia-Herzegovina had moved to the Triple Entente, and if a nation in the Entente Alliance was attacked, each participating nation promised to provide military support.
