Rowan is a lecturer in the History Department at Canterbury University who has done years of research into ANZAC history. In this interview (released in the month that is the centenary of World War I ending) we talk about his early childhood in Auckland, what led him to study history, and why it is that we celebrate a defeat in WW1 rather than the end of the war or a victory. This is one of those wide ranging interviews that touches on many areas so I am sure you will enjoy it. Rowan's book on the topic of the ANZAC history will be published in 2019.
