Listing Detail Tabs

This volume is a study of New Zealand during World War 11. Its primary concern is with the Dominion’s external relations, and with domestic trends which influenced external policy. Purely military and economic affairs are excluded; but strategic and economic problems are discussed when they reacted upon opinion and policy-making. Similarly, though the book is not concerned with party politics, it analyses their trends and character in so far as they influenced wartime policies. Its terminal dated is the end of the fighting against Japan. Already by this time, however, the main problem of the ensuing period – and New Zealand policy towards then – had become clear. Again, the character of New Zealand’s war-making was only intelligible as a sequel to pre-war trends; and these are accordingly analysed. The book has thus a far broader scope that its title would indicate; and it is based on a wide range of information, much of which is unpublished and which has hitherto been confidential. This volume accordingly is not only a detailed account of New Zealand life and thinking during a critical period; it is a serious contribution to the understanding of events of world importance with which New Zealand was associated. British Commonwealth intervention in Greece in 1941 is a notable case in point.
