From Tauranga to the Trenches
Rich with photographs and memorabilia, the book also contains excerpts from letters and diaries written by men serving overseas. The time period ranges from the declaration of war on 4 August 1914 through to serving overseas, the Influenza Pandemic, peace celebrations, British war brides, return to normal life and Tauranga's Memorial Gates. Also covered are the war effort at home, the role of women and children and the concerns of those at home.
The inclusion of a contents page, introduction, detailed Roll of Honour with photographs, sources list and index help to round out this truly valuable contribution to a horrific period in world history and place it into a local context.
