AUTHOR: IAN MCGIBBON
publisher: Penguin


“The Western Front, where New Zealand fought its deadliest military campaign, contains some of the most significant sites in the story of New Zealand's First World War – the Somme, Messines, Passchendaele and Le Quesnoy.

The Western Front: A Guide to New Zealand Battlefields and Memorials is the indispensable handbook to the history and geographic features of the European campaign for a modern, general readership.

Easy to follow and highly illustrated, it introduces the battlefields, cemeteries and memorials, detailing the stories behind each and offering historical overviews of New Zealand's involvement.

The perfect introduction to New Zealand and the Western Front.”
