Best Answer

It did, World War 1 was a defining time for our country with those 4 years enough to establish the early Australian identity of mateship and courageousness. It has influenced many other identity issues through out the decades and the Austrian identity has changed a lot since then based on this.


Also, sadly Australians realized that they were used as puppets in someone else's war.
