Lord Freyberg (1889~1963) is New Zealand's most distinguished soldier: he won a Victoria Cross in the First World War, commanded the 2nd New Zealand Division throughout the Second, from the ill-fated campaigns in Greece & Crete to the triumphs in North Africa & Italy & thereafter became Governor-General of New Zealand 1946~1952.

Bernard Freyberg won national swimming titles in his youth & put his prowess in the water to good use when he swam ashore at Gallipoli the night before the landing & set decoy flares which confused the enemy & delayed their response to the following day's attacks.

Rising from subaltern to brigadier-general during that war, he established a reputation for courage, intelligence & care for his men, both on the battlefield & off it. As a divisional commander in the next war, he was able to expand that reputation, until his division became legendary for its skill & spirit.

He was Winston Churchill's friend & moved with equal ease in English society or among the other ranks of his units. After his successful & popular vice-regal term he became a member of the Royal Household as a Deputy Constable & Lieutenant-Governor of Windsor Castle.

In this biography Wyn Beasley has captured the essence of this man of distinction: one who can fairly be described as an authentic hero.
