Parallel text in English and Maori
"In the early 1860s people around the world were reviewing methods of warfare and improvements to how wounded soldiers from all sides were treated. Tauranga Maori were among those pondering the same ideals as notable reformers Henry Dunant and Florence Nightingale. Henare Taratoa penned a Code of Conduct prior to the Battle of Gate Pa at Pukehinahina (29 April 1864). After the battle the British were stunned, not only by their defeat, but by Maori compassion. This bilingual book tells the story of Taratoa's Code of Conduct and the compassionate actions that resulted"--Back cover.
