              Old soldiers never tell their war stories? This one did: "General Johnstone tried to compliment us on our 'work' but was cut up too much when he heard of our losses. He was visibly affected. We marched to Mametz Wood and there Col. Plugge also tried to address us but he could not... control his feelings either. We went into the trenches with 804 men. Came out with 201. Our casualties for the two stints were 603. Plugge was far too cut up to say a word about it. We camped in the woods for the night..." Onesimus William Howe served in the Auckland Infantry Regiment. His unit was the first to hit the beach at Anzac Cove in Gallipoli. In fact, Howe's experiences at Gallipoli are quoted by historian Chris Pugsley in his book Gallipoli - The New Zealand Story. But it is what happened next that defined WWI for the ANZACS, when they came face to face with heavily armed Germans at the Somme. In this important new work, taken directly from his battlefield diary, see the events of 1916 as if you are there: "That left me in charge of the gun. Percy and I are the only ones left on this gun now..." Compelling, honest, surprising, uncensored.

              Blood Brothers (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Hopkins-Weise, Jeff

              By the middle of the nineteenth century, the very existence of European colonial settlement in New Zealand was under threat. With Queen Victoria's British forces stretched thinly across the globe, the New Zealand colony had to look to its sister colonial states in Australia fo...r support. This ground-breaking work shows, for the first time in detail, how the military, social and economic brotherhood later embodied in the notion of the Anzac spirit began not on the sandy beaches of Gallipoli but 50 years earlier in the damp forests and fields of the North Island of New Zealand

              "Presents answers to two questions that Graeme Lindsay posed to Australian and New Zealand poets as part of his 100 Years from Gallipoli Poetry Project: 'What does Anzac Day mean to you, to today's families, communities or nations? What about Remembrance Day or other military com...memorations or anniversaries?' The views of more than 200 Australian and New Zealand poets, some well-known in the literary world and others whose poetry is known only to family and friends, stimulate and challenge the reader to consider differing ideas about each nation's commemoration of military conflicts and the emotions these evoke. Current perspectives are contrasted with those from earlier times as we are taken on a poetic journey from the 1840s, when troops from colonial New South Wales were sent to New Zealand to fight against the Maori, to the conflicts of the 21st century. Lindsay complements the poetry with more than 120 photographs of war memorials from across Australia and New Zealand, images that encourage us to reflect upon the true purpose of these symbols of remembrance and their place in today's society"--Back cover.
