New Zealand and the First World War 1914-1919
The first of its kind for New Zealand, this is a lavish, landmark production. New Zealand and the First World War dynamically illustrates 50 key episodes of New Zealand wartime life. Featuring over 500 images, the book comes with a beautiful assortment of memorabilia including fold-out maps, posters, booklets, letters and postcards.
The complete story of New Zealand's war is brought to life in dramatic detail – front-line experiences overseas as well as those on the home front, from the outbreak in 1914 to demobilisation in 1919.
This terrible conflict was not restricted to faraway battlefields like Gallipoli and Passchendaele – it had an unparalleled impact on New Zealand society, touching nearly every family, every street and every community.
