Summary
"On October 27, 1943, a force of New Zealanders and Americans invaded the Treasury Islands in the South Pacific. The action marked the first time New Zealand forces took part in an opposed landing since Gallipoli. This account of the Allied seizure of the Treasury Islands stands as a tribute to the warriors who fought in this struggle"--
