Through the Mill

During the First World War, 79 men from the Kohukohu area served overseas. Of those men, 32 were killed in action or died from wounds or illness. Mnay of the men who survived the war were mentally and physically scarred by what they had experienced.  

Through the Mill tells the story of these Kohukohu men: who they were, where they served, what they experienced and, for 32 of them, where they died. A broad overview places the men in the context of the First World War, while biographies of each man offers details of their service and wider lives.


For this book, I proof-read the entire text, ensuring it was approachable for a general reader. I also laid out the text and images, using an altered format form the InDesign library (the cover design was by Wakefield Digital).
