The First World War was only meant to last six months. When the Australians and New Zealanders arrived at the Western Front in 1916, the fighting had been going for a year and a half and there was no end in sight. The men took their places in a line of trenches dug throughout Belgium and France from the North Sea to the Swiss Alps. Beyond the trenches was no-man's-land, and beyond that was the German Army. The Anzacs had sailed for France to fight a war the whole world was talking about. Few who came home ever spoke of it again.
