By the middle of the nineteenth century, the very existence of European colonial settlement in New Zealand was under threat.

With Queen Victoria's British forces stretched thinly across the globe, the New Zealand colony had to look to its sister colonial states in Australia for support.

This ground-breaking work shows, for the first time in detail, how the military, social and economic brotherhood later embodied in the notion of the Anzac spirit began not on the sandy beaches of Gallipoli, but 50 years earlier in the dame forests and fields of the North Island of New Zealand.
