            At the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month each year New Zealanders remember the end of the First World War. Armistice Day, Philippa Werry's new book for children, commemorates the day when fighting stopped in Europe. Partnered with best-selling Anzac Day,... it makes an excellent reference for the whole family. Kiwi soldiers returned home to a terrible influenza epidemic, as the population grieved for the loss of life. Memorials were erected and families sought to return to the battlefields overseas to visit graves of their loved ones. Well researched and drawing on illustration, photographs and text from various sources, this is a gripping, moving description of the aftermath of war in Europe, giving children a clear understanding of the establishment of the United Nations and New Zealand's role in international peacekeeping.

            "Le Quesnoy (pronounced Leck con wah) is a town in northern France. It is surrounded by high walls and deep trenches. In World War 1 it was occupied by the German army for four long years. In November 1918 the town was liberated by soldiers from far-away New Zealand. Because thes...e men used a bit of kiwi ingenuity they were able to take the town back without a single civilian life being lost. This has become one of the most famous stories in New Zealand military history and the relationship between Le Quesnoy and New Zealand continues to this day. This book tells the story of Le Quesnoy liberation through the eyes of a child living in the town at the time"--Publisher information. Suggested level: junior, primary.

            We were known to the enemy as 'grey ghosts'. We could be here, and we could be there... The Grey Ghosts were New Zealand's Vietnam veterans. Their powerful story includes chilling accounts of death, injuries and emotional breakdown, along with the intense comradeship of soldierin...g, and a pervasive sense of humour that is uniquely our own. Acclaimed writer and historian Deborah Challinor interviewed 50 men who served in Vietnam, who speak out about 'fragging' (killing superior officers), the New Zealand Government's role in Agent Orange and chemical exposure, and their hostile reception when they returned. The result is compelling, reliving the Vietnam experience in vivid detail. First published in 1998, this updated edition includes new material on the subsequent handling of veteran's claims, and the reconciliation parade on Queen's Birthday weekend in 2008, when the men were finally welcomed home.
