Te Hokowhitu a Tu: The Maori Pioneer Battalion in the First World War (Paperback, 2015 reprint)

By Pugsley, Christopher

Maori Soldiers signing up for the First World War representing a formidable fighting force - Te Hokiwhitu a Tu, or the Seventy twice-told warriors of the war god, Tumatauenga. Prejudice kept the Maori Pioneer Battalion well back from the front lines as support troops, but their w...ar efforts won them rights as full citizens of their homelands. Drawing on rare archival material and previously unpublished diaries and letters, 'Te Hokowhitu a Tu' is authoritative account of Maori and Pacific Islanders in the First World War, and balances the wider story of the Pioneer Battalion's exploits with a portrait of daily life for soldiers who laboured not only against the enemy but also racism behind their own lines.
