              Balls, Bullets & Boots (Hardback)

              By Akers, Clive

              Towards the end of 2013, the New Zealand Rugby Museum embarked on an ambitious project in mounting an exhibition commemorating World War I and the part rugby players and officials played in it. Our intention was to select 15 players and use their stories (presented in words, phot...ographs and sometimes in film) to help tell the wider story of New Zealand at war 100 years ago. It would have been too easy to choose 15 from the near 100 All Blacks who served, but the intention was to cover all aspects of the war, not just the battlefields of Gallipoli, the Middle East, France and Belgium, but also the stories of those at home and how the war affected their daily lives and how rugby was restricted through so many club players being overseas. This book traces in detail the lives of the characters featured in the exhibition, its purpose being to offer the exhibition visitor a means of learning more about the personalities. The chosen players, along with one woman, range from university-educated professionals to labourers, some of whom experienced difficult upbringings. There were those who fought and survived several years of service while others died within days of entering the battlefield. Some returned home only to have their war wounds, or illness, drastically shorten their lives.
