    The fighting has been and is very stern and hard here, but New Zealand's lads and men have proven themselves the equal of the best soldiers of the world.'
    –Colonel William Malone, commander of the Wellington Battalion, Quinn's Post, Gallipoli, 15 July 1915

    The first of its kind for New Zealand – a lavish, landmark production – New Zealand and the First World War dynamically illustrates 50 key episodes of our wartime life. Featuring over 500 images, many previously unpublished, the book comes with a host of memorabilia:

    - fold-out maps
    - posters
    - booklets
    - letters
    - postcards

    The complete story of New Zealand's war is brought to life in dramatic detail – our 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. Until now, no single history has explored New Zealand's role in the First World War with such breadth and colour.

    A defining history for a new generation.
