Abstract:

This book shows how the military, social and economic brotherhood that is the ANZAC legend began not on the sandy beaches of Gallipoli but 50 years earlier in the damp forests and fields of the North Island of New Zealand. By the middle of the 19th century, the very existence of the European colonial settlement in New Zealand was threatened. But while Queen Victoria's Britain engaged in more important wars elsewhere, for example the Crimea, the New Zealand colony became totally dependent on its sister colonial states in Australia for military materials, manpower, logistical, financial and humanitarian support.
