Unsung heroes of Titokowaru’s war



"Only three out of 150 first-year Victoria history students knew who Titokowaru was when asked earlier this year. Yet Titokowaru of Ngati Ruanui was the best military leader New Zealand has ever produced, according to the author of the New Zealand Wars, a history due out later this month which radically reinterprets the Anglo-Maori conflicts of the last century. In the first of three specially adapted extracts for The Dominion, James Belich recalls the Maori chief who never lost a battle against the British."
