The Waikato War was the defining conflict in New Zealand history, says historian Vincent O’Malley in his seminal new work.

The Waikato War was the defining conflict in New Zealand history, says historian Vincent O’Malley in his seminal new work. It was a war that inflicted a huge number of casualties (more per capita than World War 1), destroyed a thriving regional economy and set back Māori-Pakeha relations by generations. His bold, new work The Great War for New Zealand: Waikato 1800-2000, has been acclaimed by Māori and Pakeha. Here, O’Malley discusses the book with Guyon Espiner.
