The impact and effect this film has had upon the psyche and perspective of several generations of Australians has been significant.
Whilst it can be argued that every Australian is aware of the ANZAC legend, and the events that occurred on the Turkish beaches in 1915, Weir’s film encapsulates and embodies a cultural myth which is now propagated here they proved themselves to be courageous and brave young men; it is this feeling that keeps the legend alive today.During this time more steps were taken to develop a legend by giving the troops a form of National Identity and calling them The Anzacs.We know now that it is now a part of Australia’s cultural identity and origin on the battlefield. Nevertheless, as I quote from the doun service speech at Anzac cove 1996, "Anzac is not merely about loss it is about courage and endurance, and duty, and love of country, and mateship, and good humour and the survival of a sense of self worth and decency in the face of dreadful odds".The legend grew stronger as the war to end all wars went on according to quotes "the campaign at Gallipoli failed but the men were not defeated there is a crucial difference.What does Anzac Day, Remembrance Day The following essay will discuss the strengths and limitations presented by Richard White (Images of Australia) regarding the factors that have contributed to the making of the Australian national identity.Focussing the essay on the Anzac legend, this essay will be approached and supported with the appropriate supporting evidence and as this paper proposes that the answer is based on opinion, the use of some non-academic references will be Gallipoli?The creator of the Anzac legend, official historian Charles Bean, was inclined and responsible for what many Australians heard about their imperishable 'diggers' (an Australia who never quits under hardship), but the Australian states rather than one country.It took the events of 1915, in particular that of the 25th of April in Gallipoli, to create the bond from Australian to Australian and the patriotic pride that we still share today. The construction of this legend was due to the words of the media and authority figures.In discussing, the Anzac legend there are many different views on the topic of describing the Anzac legend and why has it been an important part of Australian identity. From the moment the Australian and New Zealand soldiers landed at Anzac cove, the soldiers established the spirit of mateship, courage, loyalty, bravery, sacrifice, heroism, dedication, honour, integrity, initiative and determination throughout the Gallipoli campaign as they battled against daunting odds.
