Description of this Book

At the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month each year New
Zealanders remember the end of the First World War. Armistice Day, Philippa
Werry's new book for children, commemorates the day when fighting stopped in
Europe. Partnered with best-selling Anzac Day, it makes an excellent reference for
the whole family.
Kiwi soldiers returned home to a terrible influenza epidemic, as the population
grieved for the loss of life. Memorials were erected and families sought to return to
the battlefields overseas to visit graves of their loved ones.
Well researched and drawing on illustration, photographs and text from various
sources, this is a gripping, moving description of the aftermath of war in Europe,
giving children a clear understanding of the establishment of the United Nations
and New Zealand's role in international peacekeeping.
