Endurance was an inherent part of the First World War. The chapters in this collection explore the concept in New Zealand and Australia. Researchers from a range of backgrounds and disciplines address what it meant for New Zealanders and Australians to endure the First World War and how the war endured through the Twentieth Century. Soldiers and civilians alike endured hardship discomfort fears and anxieties during the war. Officials and organisations faced unprecedented demands on their time and resources while Maori Australian Aborigines Anglo-Indian New Zealanders and children sought their own ways to contribute and be acknowledged. Family-members in Australia and New Zealand endured uncertainty about their loved ones' fates on distant shores. Once the war ended different forms of endurance emerged as responses memories myths and memorials quickly took shape and influenced the ways in which New Zealanders and Australians understood the conflict. The collection is divided into the themes of Institutional Endurance Home Front Endurance Battlefield Endurance Race and Endurance and Memorials.
