Top Customer Reviews
This book is both a comprehensive history and a travel guide very cleverly rolled into one volume. It is refreshing to see that Gray has combined both areas so successfully. At no time is the read left with unanswered questions.
The reader/battlefield tourist is guided in intimate detail through the major events involving the New Zealanders in the Great War. The text is clear and concise with first class maps and pictures. Again it is refreshing to see new pictures; all too often authors use the same few commonly seen photographs to illustrate their books. The use of Trench Maps is very good; again the reader/battlefield tourist is left in no doubt as to where the events took place. More importantly the battlefield tourist is given all the GPS co-ordinates for each day tour. With the ever increasing sophistication of Satnav's this is a very welcome addition to battlefield guides.
John H. Gray has with this volume raised the bar in relation to the very best of battlefield guide books. It is a deeply researched book. It is without doubt the very best Battlefield Guide book on the market today. One can only hope that today's Great War battlefield historians use this wonderful book as the new benchmark.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is at the very pinnacle of Great War guide books. Whether you are visiting the battlefields or reading about the New Zealand Armies involvement in the Great War you should own this magnificent work.
