the author: Major N. C. Phillips, m.i.d., RA, is a New Zealander who served in a British regiment of field (later medium) artillery with the First Army in Tunisia and with the Fifth and Eighth Armies in Italy. Towards the end of the war he was on the staff of the artillery component of the Cremona Group, a reorganised Italian formation. For several years a journalist in Christchurch, he graduated MA from Canterbury University College and in 1938, as holder of a New Zealand post-graduate scholarship, he entered Merton Col- lege, Oxford, but left a year later to enlist in the ranks of the Royal Artillery. He returned to New Zealand in 1946 to take up a lectureship at Canterbury College, where in 1949 he succeeded his old teacher, Sir James Hight, as Professor of History and Political Science.
