Leading military historian seeks photographs from WW2

Professor of War Studies, Glyn Harper, is compiling a major book that brings together images of New Zealanders in the Second World War. It will be a sequel to his highly regarded Images of War (HarperCollins NZ), which brought together almost 1000 photographs of New Zealanders in the First World War and was published in 2008.

This book will also be based on the archives of the armed forces and other institutions. While compiling the previous book, Professor Harper was amazed at the quality and quantity of photos in private collections, and he is keen to explore what might be available for this new publication.

Glyn Harper is Professor of War Studies at Massey University and Massey Project Manager of the New Zealand and the First World War Centenary History Project.

If you have images in reasonable condition, either as prints or in digital format of New Zealanders in the Second World War, and with relevant information about the photographs, please contact Professor Harper at G.J.Harper@massey.ac.nz.
