            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.

            The War That Never Ended: New Zealand Veterans Remember Korea
              

            The War That Never Ended: New Zealand Veterans Remember Korea (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Desmond, Pip

            More than 6,000 New Zealanders served in the Korean War during the early 1950s. Many were volunteer members of Kayforce in search of adventure. Others sailed on the six navy frigates that plied Korean waters as part of the United Nations forces. Forty-five Kiwis lost their lives ...in this Cold War conflict that, decades later, remains unresolved. But the camaraderie among those who survived continues. Based on in-depth interviews, The War That Never Ended records the memories of 12 of those veterans - gunners, signallers, seamen, a mechanic, dispatch rider, dentist, engineer and official photographer. The men tell intimate and often surprising stories, from the rigours of manning 25-pounder guns to survival in bitter cold; from the horror of lifting mines to the delight of finding puha in the paddy fields. Honest, poignant and sometimes humorous, these unique accounts provide a fascinating snapshot of Kiwi involvement in what has been dubbed 'the forgotten war' - one in which peace has yet to be declared.
