Dan Davin - Discovering a War Poet

From Standing Room Only, 2:25 pm on 17 June 2018

20th century New Zealand writer Dan Davin is best known for his fiction, a book on New Zealand's second world war Crete campaign and his work for Clarendon and Oxford University Press after the war but, as Mark Amery discovers, he was also a poet. Wairarapa poet and New Zealand Defence Force publisher Robert McLean has brought Davin's poetry together in one volume. A Field Officer's Notebook has been published by Cold Hub Press.
