This is a paper back book by Phillipa Werry, containing illustrations, photographs, interviews and first-hand accounts. A moving description of Amistice Day – what it is and why it matters.
At the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month each year, people in New Zealand and around the world remember the day when fighting stopped in Europe at the end of the First World War. This is what Armistice Day commemorates.
How the war ended and what happened next is the subject of Philippa Werry’s new book. Armistice Day shows that the effects of war don’t end when the war ends. It focuses on peace memorials and peace makers and suggests different ways in which we can celebrate peace.
