Abstract:

"On Monday 2nd July 2007, Prime Minister Helen Clark announced that NZSAS Corporal Apiata was to receive the Commonwealth's highest military honour, the Victoria Cross. From this moment, Willie Apiata was thrust into the media spotlight, the start of a rollercoaster ride in the public eye. In Reluctant Hero, we journey with Willie as he copes with the pressure of being a recognisable public figure, a proud role model for Māori and the nation. We follow Willie from the moment that he learns he has been awarded the Victoria Cross, behind the scenes with his family, the NZSAS, the Victoria Cross investiture, his hometown marae and his attendance at the 90th anniversary commemorations of Passchendaele. It is here amongst the rows of headstones, that Willie truly realises the weight of the medal he now bears and a fateful decision is made"--Container.
