Wartime Correspondence
Compiled and Edited by Peter Macky

From Peter Russell Hay Allen to his mother during the early years of World War II

This collection of letters from Peter Russell Hay Allen to his mother depicts a New Zealand way of life and a New Zealand society that's gone forever.

In the 1930s and 1940s growing up in a family of privilege and wealth was not a precursor to a life of self-indulgence. It meant, instead, a life with more noble and self-sacrificing aims - a life of duty to society, to God and the ideals of the British Empire.

These letters reveal the most intimate and personal effects of World War II on one man and one family, and their experiences can be applied to many families throughout New Zealand.
