Its great strength lies in a narrative that dissects the military events that sparked the Anzac legend and the myths surrounding Gallipoli through their tactical elements.

I think this is a reliable resource as it is selected from a popular Australian newspaper meaning it has to have accurate information.

Newspaper articles do go through an editing process, but does that make them free from bias?

Someone may have edited this video to show Australia in a better light, by making it seem as if we have always shown our support towards our involvement in world wars, when in actual fact, many people opposed our association with WW1, WW2, the Vietnam War and conscription.

I think that the person who put this video online was in favour for Anzac day and really likes it. he wanted to post a video to promote it but could only find this video showing bothsides. He only wanted the first part so that's why he edited the last part of the video.
yan0035's comment, May 22, 2013 9:43 PM
The video is split between two parts, the positive involvement of Australia in World War 1 and the negative effects. The person who cut the video, wanted only to show the section which agreed with his argument, and did not show the other side of the story.

YOU can't pick how bad a night in the Emergency Department will be. We were caught off guard on Wednesday night. Obviously the thought of having the next day off was enough to make a very busy alcohol-related night.

Is this an example of how Australian's really commemorate ANZAC Day?

clim's comment, May 16, 2013 7:58 PM
'Celebrating' fallen soldiers is most certainly one thing - getting drunk as part of a 'celebration' in honor of fallen soldiers is another. Are we actually honoring those who died for the country by 'celebrating' the day; especially considering we didn't win the war and that we obtained no gain out of it?
