Comment

Highly respected author Monty Soutar is an
authority when it comes to historical details, story
and research. He’s an historian, teacher, soldier,
university lecturer and has held positions within the
Waitangi Tribunal and government. Monty brings
together knowledge, meticulous maps and written
text into this wonderful full, new publication.
He ensures that the (approx.) 2200 Maori
soldiers that served in World War One with their
experiences are not forgotten and the 330 lives lost
will be remembered – this is why these books are
important as the detail and accuracy becomes lost
if not drawn together.
“Life in 1914 is explored before chronological
chapters follow the soldiers overseas. Unit structure,
training, trench warfare and the role of the pioneer
in and out of the front line are explained. Keeping
a unit, drawn from a small population, at full
strength in the field was difficult, and the political
and historical issues that arose because of a lack of
reinforcements are not passed over.
The soldier’s homecoming, repatriation and life
after the war are considered in the final chapter.”
