Welcome to eStudies

We have decided to publish this educational resource, now in its 21st year, in e-magazine format to make it more accessible to your students in the digital age. We are proud to have produced more than 200 classroom units to date which can be accessed at www.ryebuck.com.au/shop/studies-catalogue/

The new format enables your students to access video, interactive modules and research links on their own tablets and computers and thus make the learning experience richer and more interactive.

In the sixth edition

The Australian Light Horse in Sinai and Palestine

After the defeat and withdrawal of the Allied invasion force at Gallipoli in December 1915 and January 1916 the AIF returned to Egypt to rest, recuperate, re-supply and re-train. Most of these troops were then sent to fight on the Western Front. Most of the Light Horse, however, became part of a British force whose aim was firstly to protect the Suez Canal from Ottoman attacks, and then push the Ottoman forces across the Sinai Desert, and then north through Palestine and Syria.

Key Inquiry Questions

  • What was the Palestine campaign?
  • What were its aims?
