The story of World War One, seen through the eyes of the ordinary New Zealand soldiers who experienced it.
“When the New Zealanders went to war, they were ignorant of its causes, and innocent of its meaning. No alternative was suggested by the Politicians, or the Press, or the Parsons. To crowds of ordinary boys there seemed to be no other possible or decent thing to do but to go and fight.” (Ormond Burton)
