To fight at Pozières
Australians seem to fight because they like to fight.

.Two Germans roll a grenade down the stairs into a dugout. Despite the chaos it causes, a man manages to leap forward and charge up the stairs, using his pistol to kill the German he sees, before ducking back into the dugout and grabbing his rifle and bayonet. He then instructs the other survivors to grab their own weapons, fix bayonets, and follow him.
Emerging in the middle of a German attack, with the Australian and German troops on top of one another in a chaotic struggle to simply survive, this small group of men get to work, using their bayonets to great effect. They cut down all the Germans they can get their hands on, fighting in vicious hand to hand combat. And then, amidst the confusion, these men see a group of roughly 40 Australians being taken back to German lines under heavy escort.
