When did Australia go to Crete in World War 2?
In the summer of 1941. (The Germans won that campaign.)
They were and are a part of the Commonwealth.
to get freedom Australia had to go to a war because people from other countries are destroying Australia.
"Go, go, go to Crete" is the overture to an operetta called "La Belle Helene" by Jacques Offenbach
Australia hasn't technically declared war against anyone that is one of the reasons we are called a free country but Australia has gone to nearly all the wars due to the alliance with the US which forces Australia to go to war when the US does but when Australia goes to war the US doesn't have to go.
Your question doesn't make sense, but most men in Australia during world war two fought in the war. Some that didn't go help support the war
Gallipoli, in Turkey, Eastern Mediterranean.
well yes and no. Australia was still a colony of Britain so they couldn't declare war but there were battles in the pacific in order to protect Australia and there were Australians at D-Day. So even though they didn't go to war Australians were fighting in the British Army, Navy, etc.
No, the opposite we were allies with Poland. When Hitler first invaded Poland, Australia along with Britain and New Zealand immediately responded by declaring war on Germany.
because they were told to..
because they wanted to :)
Cause if Australia didn't, the communist in North Vietnam would separate south to Australia.
No, but they chose to support the British (and, most Australians are of British descent).
No, they could have just surrendered to Japan when they attacked. But they defended their continent.
Yes, war does affect Australia. Australia is part of the British Commonwealth (of nations) and whatever Britain takes part in, Australia is automatically signed up for. It's part of the treaty - for an example World War One - Australians had to go to war, even if they played no part in bringing it on, but because of Britain's orders. Then World War Two - Australians were not eager to become involved due to the… Read More
As allies of the United Kingdom and opponents of terrorism, Australia supported them in their decision to go to war, and showed that support in many ways - including sending soldiers into Afghanistan.
they go to places that are'nt war torn E.g Australia,china.
to save Australia and new Zealand from getting destroyed/killed.
Australia was an ally of Britain and turkey was a british enemy, When Athe Australians attacked the Turks their army had to stop them and they did.
He wanted to escape from imprisonment
What is the title of the war movie set in World War 2 where a soldier goes AWOL whilst in Australia hiding with a nightclub singer there's an Aussie copper looking to send him back to war?
go ask your mom
The Maori Battalion of New Zealand was evacuated from Crete to Egypt. I found an article for you to read about them. See the link below.
No, Britain declared war first. Then Australia a day later, then New Zealand another day later. Finally Canada declared war 4 days later.
Well i haverecently been to Crete and it took about 3h45m to 4hrs!!! any one look to go it is amazing well if you go t sensatori but unfortunately the summer of 2009 is fully booked!!!
crete monee high school
Because he wanted to kill the Minotaur and end the terror.
An ANZAC I saw interviewed on television said that he and his comrades did it mainly because they saw it as an adventure. The war was something which allowed them to get out of Australia and New Zealand and go to another part of the world.
After WW2, Australia had very nearly been invaded so the general thought among the Australian people was to populate or perish. At the same time, Europe was destroyed by war with hundreds of millions of people with no where to go. Put the two and two together and thats why Australia accepted a boom of migrants following WW2.
Australia was in World War 2. They declared war on September 3, 1939 in response to the invasion of Poland along with Britain, France, and Canada Australia operated very fluently with the British, mostly aiding them in their tasks. The Canadians operated somewhat like this, but also took on their on tasks. Australia had important bases for ships (war and cargo) to go through that was vital to the war effort. Some people would even… Read More
As a federated country, Australia first fought in the Second Boer War.
Yes, Australia fought in World War I. In fact, Australian casualties during the war were very high - the highest per capita of any Allied country, even despite the fact that Australia never introduced conscription during the war. Australians fought in major campaigns, such as the unsuccessful Gallipoli campaign, numerous battles on the Western Front (such as the Battle of the Hindenburg Line) and in the Ottoman Empire (like the Battle of Beersheba). Australia fought… Read More
Because Australia is an ally of Great Britain. Since Great Britain wanted to go into War, Britain needed more power, and with more power, they needed more people. So Great Britain increased its power by getting all Commonwealth Countries to fight on the Allies side.
this was in may 1970 people gathereed in capital cities like sydney it was to go against conscription in Vietnam war
male birthdates were put in a barrel and people would pick on out and then if their birthdate was chosen, they had to go to war
You can go to the Australian war Memorial web site www.awm.gov.au or search a person who was enlisted in any of the wars www.awm.gov.au/find/index.asp . Hope this is of some help. Regards Leisa
The most common reason Australia has entered in previous troops was to aid Allies such as England and the US. This is the reason they entered most major wars, such as the Korean War,ÊVietnam War, and the Iraq War
To plan a vacation, or as the English say holiday, in Crete talking to a local travel agent may be the best place to start. Determine a good time of year to go, research cost, and weather. Also, checking out a book on travel in Crete would be a helpful suggestion also.
haha this is my assignment. umm i think its mainly because people didnt want to go serve in a foreign counrty and probably die.
Britain, Germany, Australia, Poor Ireland( not many soldiers-lots killed), U.S.A, etc for more info go to wiki awnsers....
How did World War 2 make Australia a more independent country by changing their ideologies and values?
It tended to make Australia see that in the case of war that England would be a bit of a waste of time and that an alliance with the united states was the better way to go. Australia's way of looking at these things were bound to change as the population was becoming more culturally and racially diverse with the shift in world populations after WW2.
It was most certainly fair for the Canadians to go to war with the Brits because Canada was a possession (colony) of the United Kingdom. Here is a comparison for you so you can understand the concept better. If the US went to war and the State of Nebraska refused to go to war it would be unfair because the other 49 states had to go to war. So Canada could not refuse being part… Read More

Yes, during WW1 and WW2, there was no conscriprtion (compulsory military service). Soldiers went to war by choice. But in the Vietnam war, conscription was introduce in Australia and the soldiers were forced for the Vietnam war to go and fight.
Well it has been around since ........ forever go to wikipedia and it will tell you good facts about it
People had to go fight in the army at World War 1 otherwise they would have been shot dead or killed.
