"The Anzac's"

Poems by Jack and by his father, A.C. Drake, who served in World War II with the New Zealand boys

In his Foreword (in more words than thi), Jack says - The spirit of ANZAC is now a huge part of the National identity of both countries and in this collection of 10 poems, I have tried to celebrate not war and conflict, but the patriotism and camaraderie that caused the young people of both countries to put their lives on hold and to what they felt was right and proper.

It contains the following poems:

"Morals and War" by A.C. Drake, "Realities of War" by Jack Drake
