This is an auction for BEYOND THE BATTLEFIELD: NEW ZEALAND AND ITS ALLIES 1939-1945 by Gerald Hensley.

"BEYOND THE BATTLEFIELD by Gerald Hensley is the dramatic unknown story of New Zealand's involvement in World War II told for the first time here in an accessible, popular and enjoyable read. Savage, Nash, Fraser, Freyberg, Churchill, Roosevelt, Menzies, all great names from New Zealand and world history during the Second World War and all involved in the story of New Zealand's response to the global conflict and therefore the destiny of our nation. Beyond the Battlefield examines a key part of New Zealands history during a time when the country was under the immense pressure of fighting a war on both sides of the world. It explores our diplomatic relationships with Great Britain, Australia and the United States, highlighting the irritants, cross comments, subterfuge and intrigue that are the real drivers of history."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Gerald Hensley was trained as a historian at Canterbury University, taking an MA with First Class Honours. He gave outstanding service to the country in the Foreign Ministry and in the Prime Minister's Department before retiring in 1999 as Secretary of Defence. Since retiring he has resumed historical research and writing with publications over the past years including Palm and Pine: New Zealand and Singapore, a chapter in For the Record, and another on New Zealand's decolonisation in Celebrating New Zealand's Emergence. Shortly to be published is a volume of memoirs covering some of the events of his time in government service.
