Courage and Valour: Episodes

Courage and Valour is an oral history series in which New Zealand veterans tell the story of their experiences in the Italian Campaign in the Second World War. You can listen online or download the episodes as MP3 files to your iPod, smart phone, laptop or any other MP3 playing device, for free.

Please spread the word about this series, the more who listen – the wider spread this fantastic history will be heard. Younger generations have very little idea what happened in Italy in 1943-1945, and the important role that New Zealanders played there in helping to rid Italy of its Fascist and Nazi oppressors.
