Our First Foreign War

From Nights, 7:13 pm on 21 April 2021

We're joined by author Nigel Robsonn who, his new book, Our First Foreign War, looks at the social impacts of the often overlooked South African war, particularly on NZ's blossoming national identity. He even makes the assertion that it was here, rather than the battlefields of World War I that the Anzac spirit had its genesis.
