Archie’s Letter tells a story of an ordinary man who went off to fight in World War II. His experiences included the Burma Railway, where he was under the command of Australian war hero, Weary Dunlop.
Archie’s Letter also tells how he dealt with his wartime experiences; how, at the age of 91, he agreed to meet a group of elderly Japanese women interested in world peace; how he could never forget the young men with him during the war who didn’t come back.
It is a book which explains Anzac day to a new generation.
Archie’s Letter is written by Martin Flanagan and illustrated by Ainsley Walters. It is adapted from The Line by Archie and Martin Flanagan in 2005.
It is distributed by Scholastic Australia.
