Glyn Harper SHOP:9781775592020

The New Zealand soldiers who fought in the First World War represented one of the greatest collective endeavours in the nation's history. Over 100,000 men and women embarked for overseas service and almost 60,000 of them became casualties. For a small nation like New Zealand this was a tragedy on an unimagined scale. Using personal testimonies, Johnny Enzed reveals what these men experienced - the truth of their lives in battle, at rest, at their best and their worst.

Hard cover, photographs, 720 pages.
