Description - Dark Journey by Glyn Harper

Definitive account of three key NZ battles of the Western Front, WWI.

This significant volume represents the culmination of over seven years' writing and research by esteemed military historian Glyn Harper. The book includes the revision and reissuing of his two earlier detailed histories of the New Zealand Divisions' major Western Front battles of World War One -- Massacre at Passchendaele (2000), Spring Offensive (2003) -- combined with a previously unpublished account of the third major battle of the Somme, at Bapaume, during which several VCs were awarded to New Zealand troops. Dark Journey presents the first comprehensive overview of New Zealand's involvement in World War One by one of our most highly regarded historians. It also provides deep analysis of the NZ war contribution, with startling revelations about the true scale of casualties, consistently under-reported in the past. This is Glyn Harper's master work, bringing together research and resources from his previous books, presenting the full story of New Zealand's Western Front experiences on a deservedly grand scale.
