Armistice Day - what it is and why it matters

NZ writer – images from many sources Philippa Werry  Armistice Day – the New Zealand Story. What it is and why it matters.  New Holland 2016  $25.00pb  64pp ISBN 978 1 8696 6441 1  Themes: Flu epidemic 1918/ Volunteers in wartime/  World War I

 In some places around New Zealand the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month is observed annually but the significance of this is possibly lost on many young people. Here in carefully selected images, an excellent booklist and a full text the reasons are explained. Another memorable book about World War I by this writer who is passionate about her subject and who has worked as a volunteer at the annual ANZAC remembrances in Gallipoli
