New Zealand Wars Teaching and Learning Resources

Over the past year I have given a number of talks and presentations on the New Zealand Wars to a variety of audiences.

I have provided links to a few of these presentations that are available online here for anyone wanting to learn more about these defining conflicts.

My books, The New Zealand Wars/Ngā Pakanga o Aotearoa and The Great War for New Zealand: Waikato 1800-2000, are also both available to purchase as e-books during the current lock-down, either directly from publisher Bridget Williams Books or from the usual online e-book outlets.

Many New Zealand libraries will also provide access to these works through the various Bridget Williams Books digital collections. Check the eLibrary section of your local library.

Michael King Memorial Lecture, May 2019
