Initially Australia answered the British dog whistle and rushed tohelp defend the Middle East against a Germany which posed no directthreat to Australia. When Japan entered th…e war, Australia's focusswitched to a valid self-defence approach against Japanese forcesmoving south, and General Macarthur;s headquarters was located inBrisbane. When the American counter advance moved to thePhilippines Australian forces were engaged in recovering itsterritories in New Guinea, and were given the side-job ofrecovering the British colonial territories in Borneo to keep thembusy. Even though there were strong internal pressures to reduceAustralian commitment as the war moved to a climax in the invasionof Japan to be carried out by US forces, Australia continued withthese side commitments in order to maintain a voice in the post-warsettlement, and a part of the occupation force in Japan post-war.
How did the combination of the Russian Revolution and US entry into the war affect the course and outcome of World War 1?

How did the Russian Revolution affect the course of World War 1 and what did it mean for German strategy?
Just because it does :p
Unrestricted submarine warfare by the German Navy, principally the sinking of the liner Lusitania, was instrumental in the decision of the US to join the Allied side.
haha naughty boy rajvir
Lenin, Stalin, Kruschev, etc.
Effectively the revolution ends Russias' involvement as a beligerant in WW1. Therefore Russia, indirectly, becomes communist because of WW1, but Communist Russia was not part …of it, surrendering a massive amount of territory as a result of the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk.
It was many things, many believe the invention of the tank was one reason, since it was able to break the trench warfare and flatten barbed wire to allow troops through to the… enemy trenches, what really stopped the war was Germany's fear of being invaded and claimed by the allies, which happened in WW2, so the Germans called for the end of the war and retreated their forces back to their borders, they signed the armistice with the US and that finished the war. the weapon that really won the war was fear and terror, of the thought of Germany becoming history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_war_1#End_of_war
At the beginning of WWI, aeroplanes were in their infancy, not used for fighting as such, but for reconnaisance. Like many technical things, war was a great boost to developme…nt of aircraft and, by 1918, aircraft in recognisably modern style had been developed.
What were the two major events that changed the course of world war 1 and why were these significant?
When Italy switches sides and The Russian Revolution
There were many changes that took place within the course of World War I following the Russian Revolution. One major change that this had on the war was that Russia and Ge…rmany settled their conflict.
During World War 2 Hitler and Stalin maintained a keep your distance and don't tread on me attitude with one another. They both signed a phony nonaggression pact knowing Hitle…r would never honor it. Hitler invaded Russia and killed 20 million Russians. Stalin took his revenge out on Hitler and let his Red Army "rape, pillage and plunder" the nations they defeated Hitler's Wehrmacht army force.
In World War 1
In 1914, the Russians tried to conquer the Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia. They failed the first time, but by the end of 1914, they succeeded. In 1915, they suffered d…efeats from the Central Powers unified, mainly because of lack of equipment. In 1916 the war industry expanded, so they managed an offensive that only stopped because the western allies couldn't shake the German defenses. In 1917 they had to withdraw due to more supply issues, and a revolt in Russia.
This Tension was beacuase Both Germany at Great Britain at the time where looking to expand and widen there empire, this caused tension beacuse both nations feared that th…e other would try to invade their land. This is also another reason wh y the alliance systems where created.
The greatest impact it had was it removed Russia from the fighting. Germany had been fighting Russia in the east while fighting France and the UK in the west. By eliminating R…ussia, Germany could concentrate her armies against France and the UK.
The Lusitania was torpedoed by a German U-boat on 7 May 1915. It was a contributing factor to the US entering WW1. The Germans were conducting unrestricted U-boat …warfare, and the Lusitania, a British passenger ship, was deemed a fair target because it was flying the British flag. Lusitania went down in approx 18 minutes killing 1,198 people (128 Americans). This incident caused a storm of emotions over what was seen as the slaughter of civilians. In both England and the US, the press stoked Anti-German sentiments further causing a large backlash in the US against Germans. This one incident helped sway public opinion, which had been largely neutral, towards the Allies and away from Germany.
