Information
There are more than 30,000 New Zealand men and women, casualties of the two world wars, buried in cemeteries and named on memorials around the world. From Gallipoli to the Western Front, Palestine and the Middle East, Greece, Crete, Italy, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, New Zealanders have fought and died for their country.

On a journey through time and place, Garrie Hutchinson takes you to these foreign battlefields, revealing their past and present. With GPS co-ordinates, written descriptions, maps and handy hints, and illustrated with exquisite photography throughout, Pilgrimage is a practical and up-to-date travel companion intertwined with a rich and elegantly told history.

For those interested in visiting the battlefields and cemeteries in person, and others wanting to simply read about the story of New Zealanders in the two World Wars, Pilgrimage is a timely and touching reminder of the impact New Zealand soldiers made in the global arena of war, and their legacy that lasts today.
