The Great War -- 1966: It used to be called "the Great War" because it was thought people had won everlasting peace. Memorials and monuments to it were built all over the world. These days, World War One is seen as the last of the soldiers' wars, in which men were more important than machinery. Those who fought believed it was the war to end all wars. Sixty-one thousand Australians were to die on European soil - only for them was the peace everlasting.
