    Author: SIMPSON TONY

    Historian Tony Simpson
    discovered that the last
    New Zealand casualty
    in World War Two was the result of a shoot out
    with Yugoslav partisans in the Italian city of Trieste.
    Intrigued, he determined to find the reasons why.
    The author travelled there, interviewed participants and explored the
    complex history of the region. His rich cast of characters includes James
    Joyce, General Bernard Freyberg, President Tito, the Archduke Franz
    Ferdinand and Pope Pius XII, who has been
    described as ‘Hitler’s Pope’.
    Tony Simpson is one of our leading social
    historians, whose 14 books include the
    prizewinning The Sugarbag Years, Te Riri
    Pakeha and A Distant Feast. He is a past
    president of the New Zealand Society of Authors
    and was awarded the MNZM for services to
    New Zealand historical research.
