About the Book
A comprehensive biography of General Sir Alexander Godley, presenting for the first time a fair and balanced look at his time as commander of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force (NZEF) and II ANZAC Corps during World War I. While Godley is generally remembered as being a poor field commander, Terry Kinloch argues that he was in fact a capable one who had little or no ability to influence the failed battles at Gallipoli and Passchendaele that he is often seen as responsible for. Kinloch also presents, for the first time, a detailed account of Godley's long pre- and post-World War I career in the British Army. After the war Godley returned to the British Army, eventually reaching the rank of general before retiring in 1933. During his 48-year military career, he also served on operations in Rhodesia and South Africa, as a mounted infantry instructor, in the post-war British occupation force in Germany, and as the Governor of Gibraltar.
About the Author
Terry Kinloch was a regular officer in the New Zealand Army for thirty years. He completed operational tours in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bougainville and Egypt, and non-operational postings in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. He is a graduate of Auckland University, the Royal Military College of Science, the Australian Army Command and Staff College, and the United States Army War College. He became a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2006. This is Terry's third work of military history. His first two books, entitled Echoes of Gallipoli: In the Words of New Zealand's Mounted Riflemen and Devils on Horses: In the Words of the Anzacs in the Middle East 1916-19, were published by Exisle in 2005 and 2007 respectively. The latter book was a finalist in the 2008 Montana New Zealand Book Awards. Terry Kinloch lives in Wellington, New Zealand, with his wife Carol.
