The New Zealand Expeditionary Force in World War I Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Mike Chappell

Part of the Men-at-Arms series

Paperback / softback


The New Zealand Expeditionary Force earned an elite reputation on the Western Front In World War I, and the New Zealanders' war effort was a defining moment in their national history.

The statistics are astonishing: of the total population of New Zealand of 1 million, no fewer than 100,000 men enlisted, and of those, 18,000 were killed and 58,000 wounded.

In other words, 15 percent of the male population of New Zealand became casualties.

Famously, the NZEF was first committed at Gallipoli in 1915, but NZ cavalry regiments also helped defend Egypt and fought in Palestine with Allenby's famous Desert Mounted Corps.

On the Western Front the Kiwis were called the 'Silent Division' for their fieldcraft and their uncomplaining professionalism.

This book is both a tribute and a history of the contribution made by a small nation.
