The Treasury Islands in the South Pacific were reclaimed from the Japanese in October 1943 by New Zealand and American forces working together. This is the first complete narrative account of the operation, which received little publicity at the time due to security restrictions. The account is based on records contained in Archives New Zealand-Wellington, diaries of commanders, and on interviews with veterans conducted by the author. Appendices give information on brigade members, orders of battle, weapons, uniforms, and operations vessels. The book also includes a chronology and glossary, plus a wealth of b&w historical photos . Newell is a historian of the Pacific War.
