              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.

              In the Heavens Above: British Commonwealth Air Training Plan : (RNZAF Aircrew Training Canada, 1940-1945) (Hardback)

              The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, known is the BCATP, was a huge joint military aircrew training programme created during WW2 by the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Its prime aim was to give advanced training to new pilots, navigators, bomb aimers, ai...r gunners, wireless operators and flight engineers, who served with the RAF, RAAF, RCAF and RNZAF during the war. In some countries it was known as the Empire Air Training Scheme, or EATS. Men also came from a variety of other countries to train in Canada, and Rhodesia set up its own training schools under the scheme. The U.K. was badly in need of replacements for its aircrew, but it was not the place for the training of airmen because of the danger of enemy attacks, the presence of too much wartime traffic, and the fickle climate. Canada was chosen for its wide open spaces, and the fact that it was out of the reach of the Luftwaffe. Up to about 8,500 New Zealanders went to Canada to take part in the BCATP, but until now there has been little known of the experiences of these men and their contribution to the war. Their contribution to the winning of the war was immense, and about a third of our men did not come back so deserve to be acknowledged. The NZ graduates went on to war service in many parts of the world. No complete list exists of the NZers who went to Canada, but the authors of the book have now built up an extensive database, and a large collection of graduation and group photos taken in Canada, through contact with hundreds of WW2 air veterans, or their families. It was through the contact with so many of our veterans now living in NZ, Australia, and Canada, and learning of their experiences, all very different and diverse, that this book came to be written. The book has been written and compiled for the families of the men who went through the BCATP, and for the public of N.Z. Its early chapters give an overview of the scheme, and tell of the early training of our young men in
