Johnny Enzed by Professor of War Studies at Massey University, Glyn Harper.
They were a generation of strong young men, born of pioneer settlers and taught to survive in harsh conditions. Fired up to serve their country and eager to see the world, these ‘Johnny Enzeds’ left their farms, factories, shops and schoolrooms to take up arms in a war they thought would last just a few months. Over 100,000 men and women would embark for overseas service and almost 60,000 of them became casualties. For a small nation like New Zealand this was a tragedy on an unimagined scale.
Johnny Enzed is based on substantial research by one of our finest military historians and Professor of War Studies at Massey University ,Glyn Harper. He has succeeded in writing a genuine page-turner that sets it apart from other First World War histories.
