              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.
