              "In the summer of 1873, Auckland newspaper editor David Leckie insisted that Russian terrorists had taken over a British warship in Auckland harbour and held the town to ransom. It was a hoax, but the moment highlighted New Zealand's growing sense of vulnerability. So began New Z...ealand's naval story, which played out through the highs and lows of the twentieth century: from the First World War, when New Zealand naval forces and personnel fought from the North Sea to the Pacific, to the Second, when New Zealand's forces saw combat in most major theatres; and finally the Cold War. This book tells that story: a dramatic, exciting and ultimately human tale of people, politics, heroism and struggle over more than 130 tumultuous years"--Back cover.

              "This is the story of New Zealand's military aviation from its modest beginnings in 1914 to the formation of the Royal New Zealand Air Force in 1936, the struggles of the Second World War and then the gyrations of the Cold War, wrapping up with the transition to the very differen...t post-Cold War world of the 1990s. It is a story of politics, of aircraft, and especially of people - of the everyday New Zealanders who fought the Second World War, who served with the RNZAF and the RAF, then and later; and who found strengths in themselves that, perhaps, they did not know they had"--Back cover.
