4. According to the New Zealand Prime Minister, what was the greatest success for the Anzacs in the war?

Answer: A new sense of nationhood

New Zealand and Australia were British Dominions, and so, their help in the victory of World War One helped them feel like their own country. After WWI, even though they were both still Dominions of Britain, they - together with the other Dominions, Canada and South Africa - gained full independence.
