Descripción

Published to mark 50 years since US forces were based in NZ (June 1942 to October 1944) this booklet had the basic aim of establishing the location of US camps, bases, stores and other military establishments in NZ during the Pacific War. It was produced at a time when groups of American veterans were visiting NZ to recall their experiences there. The US Veterans of Foreign Wars organisation estimated that more that 500,000 Americans saw service in NZ, including mebers of three Marine divisions and two Army divisions. "In addition, many US Navy --- among them 12 Seabee battalions --- units and ships were there," the VFW said. The 80 page booklet lists, with plans and photos, camps set up in North Auckland, Auckland, South Auckland, Kapiti Coast, Masterton and the Wellington area. Nineteen hoptitals and associated facilities were established, mainly in the Auckland region, and a number of major storage sites, airfields and naval facilities. A large number of US transport ships docked in Auckland or Wellington, carrying "hundreds of thousands of tons of war materials." In addtion to the plans and photos of camps and installations, the booklet contains lists of US Marine and Army units arriving in NZ, photographs of a number of memorials at former camp sites and commemorative messages. (This year, 2012, marks the 70th anniversary of the US "invasion" of NZ). First edition of 1992, 80 pages, illustrated throughout with plans and photos. Colour pictorial card cover VG+, small former owner stamp top right inside front cover, otherwise internally excellent. N° de ref. de la librería 004575
