About

How We Saw The War will retell to a new generation of New Zealanders how their mothers and grandmothers learned where their loved ones were and what they were doing during World War II.

It will republish newspaper stories from the time which reported on the activities of New Zealand soldiers in the Middle East and the Pacific, North Africa and Italy; in the air and at sea. From Michael Joseph Savage's "Where Britain goes, we go" declaration of war in 1939 until the Japanese surrender in 1945, How We Saw The War will bring back the war years. It will tell of the heroism of double VC winner Charles Upham as New Zealanders first learned of it; of the fearsome fighting of the Maori Battalion; of the roles New Zealanders played in the great air and sea battles ...but there will also be stories from the homefront: the 'Battle of Manners Street' when New Zealanders and Americans clashed in the streets; of the 'mutiny' when soldiers on leave refused to return to the war; of the increasing role women played both in the armed services and in the domestic economy.
