This is an auction for THE ROCKIES: NEW ZEALAND MINESWEEPERS AT WAR by Jack Harker.

“This is a factual history some of New Zealand's minesweepers and their ships companies. At the height of World War Two, the New Zealand Naval Board appropriated many commercial trawlers and coastal traders for conversion to minesweeping and anti-submarine service. One might imagine that these minesweepers rarely if ever saw action but that is not the case. Jack Harker, one of New Zealand’s most authoritative naval authors, records the vital work undertaken by these ships and when and where they engaged the enemy. Chapters include:

The Birth of New Zealand Rockies and Minesweepers, New Zealand’s Minesweepers in World War I, World War II Breaks Out, Raider!, The Build-up of the 25th M/S Flotilla, Entering the Pacific Theatre, The Commissioning of Kiwi, Oh What A Lovely War!, Japan Enters the Pacific, The Solomons Campaign, The Sinking of the Enemy Submarine I-1, Kiwi Home for Repair, The Destruction of Moa, Tui’s New Caledonian Triumph, The Fairmile Flotillas, Two Wars and Still Learning, Enemy Subs in Our Waters.
