The New Zealand Expeditionary Force earned an elite reputation on the Western Front In World War I, and the New Zealanders' war effort was a defining moment in their national history. The statistics are astonishing: of the total population of New Zealand of 1 million, no fewer than 100,000 men enlisted, and of those, 18,000 were killed and 58,000 wounded. In other words, 15 percent of the male population of New Zealand became casualties. Famously, the NZEF was first committed at Gallipoli in 1915, but NZ cavalry regiments also helped defend Egypt and fought in Palestine with Allenby's famous Desert Mounted Corps. On the Western Front the Kiwis were called the 'Silent Division' for their fieldcraft and their uncomplaining professionalism. This book is both a tribute and a history of the contribution made by a small nation.

The Anzac Experience strips away the myth of the Anzacs being natural soldiers who only had to pick up a rifle to be superb fighters in battle. It tells the gripping story of New Zealanders, Australians and Canadians at war – from the Boer War in South Africa to the Empire's involvement in the cataclysmic struggle of 1914-18.This is the story of citizen armies becoming professional as they learned the lessons of the Gallipoli landings and applied these to the battles of Western Front in France and Flanders. By trail and error these colonial forces became expert in the business of war, so that by 1918 they were the fighting elite in the British Armies in France.Christopher Pugsley – author of the seminal Gallipoli: The New Zealand Story – assesses who was first among equals and how the crucible of war shaped New Zealand and Australian identity forever. Richly illustrated with historical photographs and plentiful maps, The Anzac Experience is a rare blend of social analysis and military history, examining the conduct of war, the characters of the men who took part, and the impact their actions had on the young societies they sought to defend.

During World War II, the Solomon Islands became the scene of a titanic struggle between Allied and Japanese forces. After their victory on Guadalcanal, Americans advanced into the New Georgia Group with horrendous casualties. Admiral Halsey then implemented an "island hopping" strategy, bypassing Japanese strongpoints. The first was an obscure island called "Vella Lavella." This book is the first detailed examination of the struggle for Vella Lavella, covering the ground, air and sea battles and the involvement of American and New Zealand soldiers, the coastwatchers, South Pacific Scouts and the Islanders.
