With Alec Campbell's death, a door has closed to which no one has the key. Australia has lost the last direct link to one of the nation's most significant events and to a breed of Australians who have become larger than life - legends in our national psyche. He was not at Gallipoli long, though he dodged his share of bullets, saw his mates get shot, and suffered fever and sickness, as did so many of his peers.

But this book is not just an account of Gallipoli; it's a snapshot of a century of Australian history seen through the life of one man. While it started out as the story of a Gallipoli veteran, it became the tale of an 'Aussie battler' who lived an extraordinary life - a life that reflected the growth of a nation, from horse and buggy to tense global village. Even without Gallipoli, his story - full of adventure and idealism, struggle and determination - is a yarn worth telling. But as the last Anzac, Alec became a symbol for something much greater; as the sole survivor of an estimated million soldiers who fought on all sides in the Gallipoli campaign, he became 'one man in a million'.

    " Good Book.. feel guilty buying it from a thrift shop for $2!! but..so important to have Alec's life in print, and especially pleasing is the record of Alec's life postwar with his involvement in the trade u nion movement and politics, much 'who knew' :) "
