The illustrations are much superior to the caricature-like pictures in many books in the Men-at-arms series. The (of necessity) very brief recounting of some of the wars fought in New Zealand in the 19th Century is also informative, and hopefully will whet readers' interest sufficiently to inspire them to look further into the subject.

The art work is very, very good. I also found that I learned enough about the Maori campaigns to look for other sources. Often I find that this is the real value of Osprey books. They light up an area of history that allows further study. Excellent book.

This work would have been much better changing several pages about the Maori culture and equipment of the armies for a more detalied information of the battles and campaigns fought there, as Peter Abbot did with his excellent Congo Wars. It includes just a list of the british regiments that fought there, and an interesting black and white map. The summaries of the campaigns are Ok as introduction. The drawings, from Ruggiero, are excellent, and the best of the book.
