The Front Line : Images of New Zealanders in the Second World War - Glyn Harper
From the dust of the North African deserts and the slaughter in the skies over Europe to the war at sea and in the jungles of the Pacific, the 800 images in this landmark book show New Zealanders at war during the bloodiest conflict in human history.
NEW ZEALAND'S WAR THROUGH THE LENS OF THOSE WHO SERVED.
A landmark book exploring New Zealand's second world war effort through over 800 photographs, many never before published and many live-action shots taken by those at the front.
The images span North Africa, Europe and the Pacific, as well as action on the water and in the air - every battle and theatre in which New Zealanders fought. The text by one of New Zealand's leading military historians, places the images in context. Chapters on prisoners of war, the home front and New Zealand's role in Japan after the end of hostilities in the Pacific round out this rich, visual account of a conflict that dominated all aspects of New Zealand life for seven years.
