Written by Major-General Sir George S. Whitmore and published in 1902, this book tells the story of the last Maori War in New Zealand under the self-reliant policy, in the period 1860’s and 1870’s.

The book looks at the wars in detail and includes chapters on the Uriwera Mountains and the outbreak at Poverty Bay, opening of the West Coast Campaign, the reverse at Moturoa, the fall of Ngatapa, capture of Te Ngaire, and the Uriwera Champaign.
Several photographs, diagrams and maps of people and places are spaced throughout the book.

Following a period of apparently harmonious coexistence between colonists and indigenous Maoris, British impatience to conquer and rule led to the Maori insurrection and war of 1861-63 and finally to the Uriwera Campaign on the East Coast of the North Island, following the massacre at Poverty Bay, of which this is the most authoritative, detailed account, by the force commander.

The book looks at the wars in detail and includes chapters on the Uriwera Mountains and the outbreak at Poverty Bay, the opening of the West Coast Campaign, the reverse at Moturoa, the fall of Ngatapa, the capture of Te Ngaire, and the Uriwera Campaign.
