              Landing on the beach at Gallipoli, Alec Campbell, aged 16, looked more like a 12-year-old in his big brother's uniform. An Australian country boy caught up in a war he knew little about, on a peninsula he couldn't even spell, he eluded snipers as he carried water up the line to t...he trenches above Anzac Cove. Eventually he succumbed to illness and was evacuated to Cairo. Back home again, he went bush as a drover and jackaroo, but Gallipoli had opened his eyes to the iniquities of war and of Empire, and the Depression reinforced his political radicalisation. He became an active unionist, a socialist and a committed republican. Living with the injury he sustained at Gallipoli, he devoted much of his working life to helping others with disabilities. Alec Campbell, who went to war for adventure and lived to become a national icon, epitomises the Aussie larrikin and reluctant hero.

              The third in Jonathan King's acclaimed WW1 centennial trilogy. 'In the history of the world there never was a greater victory than that which was achieved in Palestine.' - Prime Minister Billy Hughes addressing the Australian Parliament in 1919. Culminating with the cavalry charg...e at Beersheba on 31 October 1917, Palestine Diaries is the story of Australia's Light Horsemen of WWI, told in their own brutally honest words - day by day, battle after bloody battle. One hundred years after that now-legendary battle - widely considered the last great cavalry charge - Dr. Jonathan King argues that the breathtaking achievement of the 4th Light Horse Brigade should become the cornerstone of our national identity. The soldiers in these pages were the first to achieve incredible victories for their new nation - ahead of the Western Front, and unlike the defeats of Gallipoli. These young Australians helped demolish the centuries-old Ottoman Empire by driving the Turks from the strategic Suez Canal across the Sinai, and up through Palestine, Jordan, and Syria to be first into the enemy stronghold of Damascus - a victory that would not only change the course of the war, but would also plant the seeds of the modern Middle Eastern conflicts. Published together here, many for the first time, are the diaries, letters, and photos of those brave young men, whose service and sacrifice helped shape a nation.

              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 Gallipo...li 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 and 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'.
