Libro books are easy to find at PDL's new warehouse

Our New Zealand distributor Publishers Distribution Limited (PDL) is now in a new location in Northcote, just across the Harbour Bridge on Auckland's North Shore.

With the move PDL has reorganised all of the stock, making each of its different publishers and agencies easy to find for agents and buyers visiting the warehouse.

It's good to see all the Libro International titles in one picking area.

We've been with  PDL since launching Libro in 2009, and are grateful for their fine service over that time. Long may it continue from their new premises.

Te Hokowhitu a Tu to be published ahead of Gallipoli Centenary

Te Hokowhitu a Tu
The Maori Pioneer Battalion in
the First World War

Christopher Pugsley

Main history of Maori and Pacific Island role in the First World War makes welcome return

Maori soldiers signing up for the First World War representing a formidable fighting force – Te Hokowhitu a Tu, or the Seventy twice-told warriors of the war god.

Te Hokowhitu a Tu tells the story of the decisive contribution that Maori and Pacific Islanders made on the front lines of Gallipoli and the Western Front.

Richly illustrated with unique photos and memorabilia, the book balances its account of military exploits with a portrayal of daily life for Maori and Pacific Island soldiers.

To mark the Gallipoli centenary, this April Libro International will re-publish Te Hokowhitu a Tu with a smart new cover and the original text.

Christopher Pugsley’s contribution to military history was recognised by his receipt of the New Zealand Order of Merit Award in January. He retired in 2012 as Senior Lecturer at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, UK, and now works as a freelance historian from his home in Waikanae. The author of numerous books including Gallipoli: The New Zealand Story, Christopher is the principal historian for Te Papa’s Gallipoli project.
