"This is the story of three decades, two wars and one community whose families were separated by military conflict during the early twentieth century. While its focus is the eastern bays of Wellington Harbour, the story is typical of all small New Zealand communites whose sons and daughters served in the Boer War or Word War 1. Drawing on national and local archives, published war histories, contemporary music and art, and family collections, it provides a moving, revealing and colourful account of a momentous time in New Zealand's history."--Back cover.
