The Last Anzac
This book is based on the true story of a small boy’s visit to meet Alec Campbell in the year 2001.
Alec Campbell was the last living ANZAC, and all of the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought at Gallipoli. He died in May 2002 at the age of 103, having enlisted in 1915 when he was just 16, stating he was 18 in order to be accepted by the army.
I remember visiting my great uncles who had fought in World War 1 as a child, in fact one of my brothers is named for them, so Alec Campbell is extra interesting for me.
