The White Ships: New Zealand’s First World War Hospital Ships – Book Review
By Gavin McLean
New Zealand’s hospital ships are often taken for granted in military histories. In fact the effort that went into and equipping the NZ hospital ships was considerable, led by the Governor General no less. The lessons were clear and the hospital ships were quickly revived for WWII.
This book is part of the centenary History of NZ and the First World War. McLean has written a lively and authoritative study, and his informative captions are a model for other authors.
