~ Images of Tuvalu ~
This Web site has been developed by a Tuvaluan for the people of Tuvalu, friends of Tuvalu and for visitors who are always most welcome.
The Polynesian country of Tuvalu consists of nine islands located in the central western Pacific Ocean. Each of these islands of Tuvalu is both unique and individual in its origin, its myths and legends and culture.
The history of Tuvalu goes back over 5000 years and is a fascinating blend of myths, folklore and reality. It is something to be admired and it is something that needs to be preserved.
The islands of Tuvalu are: Namumea, Nanumaga, Niutao, Nui, Vaitupu, Nukufetau, Funafuti, Nukulaelae and Niulakita. You are invited to visit each of these islands and to observe and appreciate the unique beauty and background of these islands and our people.

Other books by Peter McQuarrie:
The story of Tuvalu (formerly the Ellice Islands, situated north of Fiji) and Tuvaluans’ involvement in the Second World War. Tuvaluans worked with New Zealand coast-watchers in reporting the movements of the Japanese Navy. They suffered the effects of American occupation of their islands and bombing raids by the Japanese. Tuvaluans working on the phosphate islands, Ocean Island and Nauru, suffered under Japanese rule. Some were conscripted into the Japanese Navy and trained to fight, they were then executed when food supplies ran low. Others were transported to Tarawa or Kusaie as slave labour for the Japanese. This book documents the many dimensions of the war: military, social, political and environmental.
