The outbreak of world war one took more than 100,000 New Zealanders overseas, or ten percent of the then population of one million, of which more than 18,000 died and over 40,000 were wounded. Nearly every New Zealand family was affected.
Anzac Day on the 25th of April marks the anniversary of the first campaign that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
