Reed Books. Birkenhead, Auckland, New Zealand. 2001. first edition - ISBN-0-7900-0817-3;. pages 237 pages including bibliography and index; profusely illustrated with more than 150 b/w and colour photographs, paintings and diagrams; hardcover in illustrated dust jacket protected with an archival grade mylar removable dust jacket protector; heavy book so extra postage required for destinations outside of Australia. mint condition. ISBN-0-7900-0817-3 - As the New Zealand cruiser HMS Achilles closed with the German armoured ship Graf Spee off Montevideo in December 1939, a sailor ran across the deck carrying a tightly bound bundle. 'Make way for the Digger Flag!' The New Zealand ensign rose to the masthead, and over the next ninety minutes the gunners fired so fast that the paint on their guns blistered. The battle highlighted the point that New Zealand's naval interests could lie anywhere along her far-flung trade routes. The struggle to protect those routes has, in essence, been New Zealand's naval story. Blue Water Kiwis recounts that story from its beginnings in the 1880's, when the serio-comic adventures of the fictitious Russian cruiser Kaskowiski first alerted New Zealanders to the vulnerability of their ocean trading links. Efforts to address this within the framework of Empire included the 'gift dreadnought' HMS New Zealand of 1909 - in reality an effort to undercut Australia - and the flawed 'Singapore strategy' of the inter-war years. The Royal New Zealand Navy emerged for political reasons in 1941, 'coming of age' in the post-war years when New Zealand ships served from Korea to the Antarctic. Illustrated with more than 150 photographs, paintings and diagrams, Blue Water Kiwis is a fascinating account of the human, political and economic pressures that have driven the development of the 'blue water' branch of New Zealand's Defence Force., Reed Books.
