Major General Sir Howard Karl Kippenberger, KBE, CB, DSO and Bar, ED, was an exceptional New Zealander and one of the truly great military commanders of World War Two. Here Glyn Harper examines his formative years, including his WW1 experiences, and shows how they influenced his style of leadership and performances on the battlefield.
Glyn Harper is the author of several books on military history, including a biography of Kippenberger, the very popular Massacre at Passchendaele (which was issued in both hardback and paperback) and an edited collection of letters from First World War soldiers, Letters from the Battlefield. Glyn is currently Associate Professor of Military Studies at Massey University, Palmerston North.
