Note "This book was supported by Ministry for Culture and Heritage's War History Trust"--Title page verso. "New Zealand Defence Force ; Massey University ; Te Puni Kokiri ; Auckland War Museum"--Title page verso. Includes bibliographical references. This major publication about Maori participation in the First World War is written by New Zealand's leading Maori military historian Dr Monty Soutar, author of the award-winning Nga Tama Toa C Company, Maori Battalion. A fascinating look at the Pioneer Battalion (the Battalion created for Maori to serve) that will shed light on the reasons why some men signed on to serve, and others staunchly resisted the call to join the imperial conflict. As with Dr. Soutar's first book, it combines the story of the war and the role of Maori in it, with the words and thoughts of the men themselves, as well as those back home. Over 300 images, many from family collections and not published before.
