Description: A doctor, a soldier and a judge, all men of strong conviction, all men who died prematurely. In his final book, New Zealand literary luminary, James McNeish, brings together three men who defied the Establishment and broke ranks: Dr John Saxby, a pioneering psychiatrist; Brigadier Reginald Miles, a soldier who disobeyed orders and went into battle with his men; and Judge Peter Mahon of Erebus fame.

Presented in a compelling narrative, this highly readable book not only celebrates the lives of these notable men and their contributions to New Zealand, but also considers what it means to be a good New Zealander.
