520    In the summer of 1914 Germany's Pacific colonies were a 
       quiet backwater of its empire. But the shots of Sarajevo 
       shattered the Pacific as well as Europe. Within weeks of 
       the outbreak of World War I, Western Samoa - the First 
       German territory to be taken in the war - New Guinea, and 
       the Micronesian islands, were occupied by Australian, New 
       Zealand, and Japanese forces. Current historiography 
       claims that World War I made little difference to the 
       indigenous populations of the Pacific and that this change
       in colonial masters had little effect on those they ruled.
       The Neglected War challenges this interpretation. World 
       War I and its aftermath, Hermann Hiery claims, had a 
       tremendous effect on the Pacific Islands. Hiery details 
       the policies pursued by Australia, New Zealand, and Japan,
       showing how each viewed and treated the indigenous 
       populations. Administered by military officers with little
       civil oversight, the new colonial regimes employed the 
       mandates they had received at the Paris Peace Conference 
       with impurity. Hiery's scrupulous review of the evidence, 
       gathered from largely unknown primary sources, has 
       uncovered a story of masquerades and coverups, negligence 
       and duplicity, leading in some cases to full-blown 
       atrocities. Most of all, he tells the story of Pacific 
       Islanders, how they coped with the dramatic changes 
       brought about by the war, and how they tried to influence 
       its consequences. Many Islanders were fully aware that 
       their political destiny was to be redefined after the war,
       and a few even saw it as an opportunity to achieve 
       independence. This is also the story of their failure. 
       Behind the evidence gathered here lie fundamental 
       questions: How important are the differences in the nature
       of particular colonial regimes, and what effect do such 
       differences have on indigenous peoples? How do indigenous 
       peoples interpret disparities in colonial rule? This 
       revisionist work addresses these issues while shedding 
       light on a crucial time in the history of the Pacific.
