From Sunday Morning, 11:07 am on 11 October 2015

Harry Ricketts and Gavin McLean discuss editing The Penguin Book of New Zealand War Writing, which explores the ideas of camaraderie and courage, patriotism and politics as well as the big questions of nationhood and identity. Some of this country's best known writers, poets and journalists feature in the book which looks at the impact of wars from precolonial times right up to the current war zones in the Middle East.
