"Talk about the charge of the Light Brigade. The infantry said we were mad, and by Jove we were! We charged over barbed wire entanglements, over trenches..."
The Troopers' Tale tells for the first time the exciting stories of the Otago mounted Rifles during their many overseas campaigns. It features compelling personal histories of the soldiers involved; all neatly placed alongside the provincial history of New Zealand. The Troopers' Tale features nearly 400 photographs, illustrations and maps - most of which have never been published - along with comprehensive endnotes, appendices and indices.
The 12 chapters are written by historians Dr Christopher Pugsley, Lt Colonel Terry Kinloch, Dr Jeff Plowman, Dr Don Mackay, Dr George Davis and Graham Scott, and edited into a compelling and compehensive history by Dr Mackay and Dr Paul Sorrell. At least 20 other experts in their related fields have also offered contributions.
