As the great powers slugged it out in the world's first World War, more and more men were drawn into their nations' armies and sent to serve many miles from home. Stevenage, a quiet Hertfordshire town, became home to two military camps, the Royal Engineers Signal Camp, North Road and the New Zealand Reserve Signal Company depot. Told for the first time is the story of these two camps and especially of the New Zealand force, which became the largest contingent in the town. Why were German troops in Stevenage High Street?Just what were Maori warriors doing in the town?And was that really a German U-boat in the High Street? Lavishly illustrated with many previously unseen images of Stevenage at war, this book provides answers to these and many other questions, as well as telling the tragic story of New Zealand war veteran G.V.T. Moore, the only member of the force who remains in Stevenage today.
