Landscapes of Conflict A field guide to the New Zealand Wars By Nigel Prickett

The New Zealand Wars (commonly termed The Maori Wars) of the 19th century, were a major event in New Zealand’s colonial history and their political reverberations are felt to this day. This book is a field guide to dozens of battlegrounds, Maori and Pakeha fortifications and other historical sites. It covers the British assault on Ohaewai; Te Kooti’s and Tikowaru’s redoubts; visits the sites of British stockades and the cemeteries commemorating the men and women who lost their lives. Text and road maps make it easy to identify battle sites and points of interest.
