Kia Kaha: New Zealand in the Second World War: New Zealand in the Second World War

Author(s): John Crawford

Second World War

This collection of essays by leading historians represents the most important book on New Zealand's involvement in the Second World War to date. A sell-out when first published in hardback, the paperback edition has an attractive new cover and should be an essential item in any military collection. Readable and well-illustrated, this book contains many new insights into New Zealand's role in the war and demonstrates the disproportionately large contribution this nation made to the Allied cause. Covering subjects such as strategy, command in war, the home front, the scientific war and the founding of the United Nations, the essays here illustrate the strain placed on New Zealand's human and material resources and the difficultly small nations have making their voices heard when matters of the utmost importance are being decided.
