Scientist writes book on New Zealand's first Italian battle
Jeff Plowman, author of "Orsogna - New Zealand's First Battle"
AgResearch scientist Jeff Plowman, not content with researching during the day, has recently had his night research published.
The definitive work on the Battles for Cassino in 1943, published by a UK company, went on sale in late November.
The work casts light on a battle where New Zealand soldiers were far more influential than they have been given credit for.
