The personal account of an infantryman, who served with 2NZEF in the latter stages of the Italian Campaign during WWII, then was sent to Japan as part of the 2NZEF contingent in 1946. A well-detailed account that gives the reader insight into the day-to-day life at the front from the battle for Faenza through to Trieste. The “Kiwi Tourist” exploits following VE Day in Italy are well covered, as is the problems faced by the 2NZEF as an occupational force in Japan.
