            Tiny Niue lies alone in the south Pacific, a single island with formidable cliffs rising from the deep ocean. Far from the main shipping routes and with a daunting reputation, 'Savage Island' did not naturally invite visitors. Yet Niue has a surprisingly rich history of contact, ...from the brief landings by James Cook in 1774 through to the nineteenth-century visits by whalers, traders and missionaries, and into the twentieth century when New Zealand extended its territory to include the Cook Islands and Niue. To date, this story has not been told. Using a wide range of archival material from Niue, New Zealand, Australia and Britain, Margaret Pointer places Niue centre stage in an entertaining and thoroughly readable account of this island nation through to 1974, when Niue became self-governing. As important as the written story is the visual record, and many remarkable images are published here for the first time. Together, text and images unravel a fascinating and colourful Pacific story of Nukututaha, the island that stands alone.

            Soldiers from the Pacific: The Story of Pacific Island Soldiers in the New Zealand Expeditionary Force in World War One
             

            Soldiers from the Pacific: The Story of Pacific Island Soldiers in the New Zealand Expeditionary Force in World War One (Paperback)

            By Weddell, Howard

            During World War One over 1,000 men from Cook Islands, Fiji, Niue, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, Samoa and Norfolk Island volunteered to join the New Zealand Military Forces. Their service included Gallipoli, France, Egypt and Palestine. Despite the fact that 107 of these men died of ...disease or enemy action, 73 were wounded in action and three became prisoners of war, regrettably until now their story has not been adequately told. 'Soldiers from the Pacific' describes how the Pacific Islanders, Native and Europeans, were recruited to the Imperial cause, their training and war time campaigns. 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"
