The ANZAC Experience: New Zealand, Australia and Empire in the First World War
Christopher Pugsley
Oratia Press, 2016 Softcover 356 pages
b/w photos. In mint condition. As new.

The Anzac Experience is an ambitious work that traces the evolution by trial and area of the New Zealand Army, as well as Australian and Canadian forces, from the South African War to the First World War.

A Montana Books Awards finalist when it first published in 2004 and now in a new edition, Christopher Pugsley's brilliant work tells the story of citizen armies becoming professional as they took the lessons of the Gallipoli landings and applied these to the Western Front - becoming the fighting elite of the British armies in France.

Reviewing for The Journal of Military History, Allan Converse described the book as 'one of the best works of Australasian military history I have ever read'. Written in Pugsley's trademark clear and concise style, with plentiful maps and photos, this is a work that is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand New Zealand's military contribution one hundred years ago.

The new edition will be published on 06 April this year.
