First official copy of landmark book on Waikato War presented to King Tuheitia
The first single-volume history of the Waikato War since 1879 was presented yesterday to King Tuheitia at the Waahi Poukai. The Great War for New Zealand by Vincent O’Malley publishes on Monday and is already being hailed as a landmark book for New Zealand.
As Rahui Papa, Chairman, Te Arataura, Waikato-Tainui observes: ‘Vincent O’Malley’s work … shines a spotlight on a dark period of our collective past and brings it into a modern conversation for the consideration of New Zealand’s future’
