Abstract

the contemporary pacific · 18:2 (2006) his sons pursue a similar pattern. While the novel foregrounds the ways in which whanau (family) is integral to ensuring the survival of these young men, their wives and children in particular pay a tremendous price in reassembling the fragments after war. Perhaps these legacies for the future represent the most important difference between one generation's war and the next, and they signal some hope for the process of healing and recovery. Tu's diaries and letters begin to uncover these family secrets and are directed to his brothers' two children; although their Päkehä mother is estranged from the family, signaling yet another alienation, the children's attempt to reassemble a relationship with their reclusive uncle suggests a regenerating movement in the spiral. Grace explains that this book was inspired by her own attempts to fill in the gaps left by her father's experience in the 28 (Mäori) Battalion. The interstices of his wartime journal thus provide the space for the creative author to weave an imaginative fabric that attests to the bravery and, after sixty years, the unimaginable sacrifice. front and his initial training period in North Africa are not shown to facilitate
