For two decades after the war, he was literally mobbed by adoring soldiers and their families everywhere he went.

However, McKenzie embodied almost everything the typical Anzac digger loved to hate. He was a Salvation Army chaplain, who preached against booze, brothels, betting and bad language. Yet McKenzie was respected and revered by the soldiers he served—and those who honour them should pay attention to his story.“Amazingly, the most famous padre in the AIF has waited nearly a century for a full, sympathetic but careful biography.

Daniel Reynaud does justice to Fighting Mac, looking beyond the legend to discern the man.”—Professor Peter Stanley, Australian Centre for the Study of Armed Conflict and Society, University of New South Wales
