To The Memory: New Zealand’s War Memorials

To-The-Memory_cvr-72

This beautiful book which is a substantial update and rewriting of The Sorrow and the Pride is based on over thirty years of loving research. There are over 1000 war memorials in New Zealand. To the Memory tells a fascinating story of who erected the memorials and why, and reveals how their diverse forms say so much about New Zealand identity and the tragedy of war. The book ranges from the surprisingly diverse memorials to the New Zealand Wars, through the stone statues put up after the Great War and the locals halls after the Second World War, through to the extraordinary revival of memorial-making in the last decades.  The story is illustrated with superb modern and historical photographs.
