Summary
"Between 1939 and 1945, New Zealanders fought on, below or above every ocean of the world, from South American waters to the Pacific, from Cook Strait to the Arctic and most sea between. Editor Matthew Wright has collected some of their most exciting, harrowing, emotive and adventurous tales. These are human stories from the age that forged New Zealand, an era when civilisation seemed on the brink of catastrophe - and when New Zealanders were fighting to save the world they knew"--Back cover
