The New Zealand wars of the 1840s and the 1860s – 70s were an extraordinary period in the history of this country.
Sacred Soil tells the stories, in words and images, of the battles, of new developments in trench warfare, and of the people, the politics, and the respect of each side for the other. It also serves as a reminder that the legacy of those events is still very much with us.
