Meticulous researched, this book lists and provides a short biography from Army records of every known Pacific soldier. "Ground breaking, finely detailed, even-handed and long overdue account of Pacific Islanders in WW I" "A comprehensive history of the Pacific soldiers who fought with New Zealanders in WW I" "A genealogist must have reference"
