Historical & Heroic Women
A nurse’s journey in the Royal Australian Air Force

This is Sharon Brown’s Story.
Voices of World War II
New Zealanders Share Their Stories
After New Zealanders and Australians alike came out in strong support of the original Hardback edition, and sold out our original run, we have decided to re-print this important book in a flexibound format for those who missed out.
In this collection of memories sent in by families across New Zealand, you will find a rare insight into wartime life across generations and vocations.
Fascinating and genuine, this book is a visually captivating compendium of photographs and written accounts, providing a snapshot of what life was like during WWII, from the point of view of those who lived through it.
