              Skyhawks: The History of the RNZAF Skyhawk (Hardback)

              By Simms, Don; Lee-Frampton, Nick

              This book is in brilliant colour, with hundreds of photographs. It will give the reader an understanding of what it was like to be in the professional, close-knit team that was the RNZAF Air Combat Force. Whether in the flying units at Ohakea and Nowra, or in the support units at... Ohakea and Woodbourne, they were true professionals, totally dedicated to operating old but well maintained aircraft that were a testament to good old kiwi ingenuity and were far from being clapped out as others famously chose to describe them. New Zealanders can be hugely proud of the achievements of their Air Combat Force over many decades. This book records their history. It is dedicated to all those who flew, and supported the Skyhawk in its 31 years of active Royal New Zealand Air Force service.

              Regular Soldier: A Life in the New Zealand Army (Hardback)

              This title is not meant to be an autobiography or a history, it is a bit of both. What the book depicts, is the psychological strength of New Zealand soldiers and soldiering in human terms, there is nothing which the well - trained and well - led Maori / Pakeha soldier combinatio...n cannot achieve. This has been acknowledged and documented by those who should know, our opponents and our comrades in arms. New Zealanders operate on the simple premise that there is no point in being second in the serious business of soldiering, and for this reason they will not accept inferior leadership or performance. Rennie has been quoted as saying that there is nothing as fulfilling as serving with New Zealanders in an atmosphere of mutual confidence and respect - and it is a relationship as unique as it is effective which is the measure in this book.

              "Set during the bloody intertribal Musket Wars (1818-1839) and the Anglo-Maori New Zealand Wars (1845-46 and 1860-1872), this book reveals a hitherto unknown dimension of this country's military history. It brings to light the various ways Maori acquired, mastered and deployed sh...ips artillery, ceremonially in times of peace, and as instruments of destruction in offensive and defensive warfare. It resurrects or reconstructs long forgotten accounts of tribal artillery pieces, artillerymen and artillery battles, whose details were known throughout old tribal New Zealand"--Publisher information.
