Courage. Tragedy. Heroism. Goodwill. Loyalty. Commitment. Respect. Even, surprisingly often, humour. The experiences and emotions show on every page of the Official History of New Zealand in the Second World War.
Published by the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs in the decades after the end of the war, this fifty volume series covers all areas of New Zealand’s involvement, from detailed accounts of particular battalions, to the political and economic background and consequences, to full accounts of particular episodes and campaigns.
