By the middle of the nineteenth century, the very existence of European colonial settlement in New Zealand was under threat. Weakened by its campaigns and wars against the Maori, the New Zealand colony turned to its sister colonial states in Australia for military materials, manpower, logistical, financial and humanitarian support. This book shows how the military, social and economic brotherhood that is the ANZAC legend began not on the sandy beaches of Gallipoli but 50 years earlier in the damp forests and fields of the North Island of New Zealand.
