This is an auction for MASSACRE AT PASSCHENDAELE by Glyn Harper. review:

“The story of this tragic loss, New Zealand's worst military disaster, has not been told fully until now. In just a few short hours on a miserable Belgian morning over 1000 New Zealand soldiers were killed and a further 2000 wounded in an attack on the German front line. In MASSACRE AT PASSCHENDAELE Glyn Harper brings this ill-fated battle to life. The background to the situation facing the Allies in October 1917 is outlined, and the first assault on Passchendaele is described. This near-perfect military operation brought the New Zealand soldiers much acclaim; however, the second attack, on 12 October, was anything but successful. The rationale of the strategists, the concern of some officers and the desperation of the fighting man are all recorded here. Diary extracts and recorded interviews transport the reader to the centre of this harrowing event. An appendix lists the names and details of the New Zealand soldiers killed at Passchendaele. Passchendaele was a pivotal event in New Zealand’s history, and a key influence on attitudes to war in the following decades.”
