New Zealand History online, an overview with links to other resources
This website has been set up to bring together information about the New Zealand Wars which were fought in New Zealand between 1845 and 1872.
The texts in this collection include analyses and observations on the New Zealand Wars, and feature diary extracts and letters between some of the major figures. As these texts are typically historical, many originally being published during or soon after the events they describe, the opinions, observations and conclusions must also be regarded in an historical context.
