The Man the Anzacs Revered

The Man the Anzacs Revered

Author: Daniel Reynaud
$24.95

This is the legendary true story of William McKenzie, whose tireless work as a Salvation Army Chaplain among the Anzacs in World War I earned him the nickname 'Fighting Mac'.

What makes McKenzie's reputation incredible is that he embodied almost everything that the typical digger loved to hate. He railed against booze, brothels, betting and bad language, and forcefully appealed to the Anzacs to become Christians. Despite these apparent disadvantages Fighting Mac was worshipped and revered by the soldiers—becoming the man who best represented the Anzac ideal.

If the original Anzacs revered him, then we who revere them should pay attention to his story.
