For much of New Zealand’s commemorative history of the Great War, the land battles of Gallipoli and Passchendaele have dominated our imagination. But New Zealanders were also pioneers in the new field of military aviation. Flying the open cockpit wood-and-wire biplanes of WWI, New Zealanders undertook reconnaissance sorties and bombing raids, photographed enemy entrenchments, defended England from German airships, and battled enemy fighters. Drawing on extensive archival material from Australasia and Britain, historian Dr Adam Claasen explores the fascinating and untold endeavours of New Zealand’s first military airmen.
