The fall of Kororāreka

The fall of Kororāreka

This chapter opening from James Cowan's The New Zealand wars (volume one) shows the writer's talent for setting a scene and creating a sense of drama. It also reveals why this work of history remains relevant and readable in the 21st century: it presents both Pākehā and Māori perspectives on events, based on the testimony of survivors of the wars.
