Last Stop to Armageddon: The Camp Hughes Story is a documentary that examines the First World War through the eyes of a young person exploring the former military training grounds known as Camp Hughes, located near Brandon, Manitoba. It is here that a tangible connection is found to a war fought long ago, and an ocean away.
It is a documentary about creating a connection between today’s young generation and the First World War through Camp Hughes. Even though the actual battlefields are an ocean away and the events were over a hundred years ago, right here in Canada a young Canadian can begin to start to understand by walking the same trenches that the soldiers did. Camp Hughes is more than just a physical connection but a haunting symbol of a tragic conflict and a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that those who never returned to Canada gave.
