World War I was, at this point in history, the most devastating military engagement the world had ever witnessed. The four-year war entangled nations and militaries from around the world, killed millions of civilians, millions more troops on both sides, and left much of Europes landscape pockmarked with artillery holes and trench lines.

The Treaty of Versailles brought about the formal conclusion of hostilities in World War I. Signed in France on June 28, 1919, the treaty wrapped up the war and set the stage for German reparations to the victorious Allies that were intended to compensate the victors for their efforts in halting German aggression on the continent.
For the Fallen was written by Laurence Binyon, an English poet and writer, and was first published in 1914 not long after the start of the First World War. The Ode is the name that has been given to the fourth stanza from For the Fallen and was actually written first. This stanza has become the most recognized of the entire poem, reprinted by many Australian newspapers during the war. It has since been adopted as part of remembrance ceremonies both in Australia and around the world.
Today The Ode is recited at memorial services commemorating the First World War, such as Anzac Day and Remembrance Day, in honor of all casualties of war regardless of their nationality. It is also recited by men and women of the Australian Defense Force each afternoon at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, as part of the Last Post Ceremony.
