australians were involved in the war against the Turks (a German ally) at Gallipoli which ended in a tragic loss for Australia.

The war originally began between two sets of alliances: The Central Powers (Gemany, Austria-Hungary and their allies) and the Triple Entente (Britain, France and Russia). It is important to understand that Australia was and remains part of the British Empire and this ensured that their was a strong alliance. Australia's Prime Minister at the time, Andrew Fisher, promised Britain we would support them.
Australia only had a population of less than 5 million at the time and we sent 324,000 people overseas. We lost 61,720 and 155,00 were wounded. Our involvement is synonymous with the ANZAC legend, which stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. It was our first military engagement where significant numbers of Australians fought and died as Australian nationals.
The ANZACS were a part of an allied campaign againsts the Turks to control the Dardenalles and open the way to Constantinople and Eastern Europe.
