Review by Jan on 15th November, 2011
 
5 stars "A clear objective view of NZ war events and their motives."

This book is a fascinating overview of war involving NZers both here and overseas. Clear and objective accounts of various battles provide information and a pictorial record for readers of all ages. Excellent for providing a clear history for new NZers.

3 stars "Good for school projects"

Aimed at young readers, this book replaces ceaseless facts and figures and unpleasant academic writing with large photos and diagrams, easy to follow language and chapter summaries to make this perfect for primary school projects.

Description

The fourth book in Random House's highly regarded Illustrated History series for eight to 12 year olds, Marcia Stenson's The Illustrated History of New Zealanders at War is an excellent resource for students, families and libraries.

From pre-European tribal warfare to the musket wars, from the Land Wars to the Boer War, and right up to conflicts in Korea and Vietnam and peacekeeping in the Pacific, Marcia uses her trademark informative, accessible style to explain to younger readers the intricacy of battle, weaponry and the various causes for which life was risked, blood shed and valour demonstrated. Rich in images, facts, figures, break-out boxes on heroes and heroines etc, and the sort of detail young readers cherish.
