By Major-General Sir James Alexander and was first published in 1873, "The incidents of the Maori War 1860-1861 were published by me some years ago. The events which occurred chiefly in Taranaki, were very interesting, subsequent "actions and incidents" were sanguinary and exciting, and afford useful instruction in Bush Fighting, and bo other military or naval man had given a detailed account of the last operations in New Zealand, I undertook the task, for I thought that in justice to the forces engaged, Regulars and Colonials, soldiers and dailors, their gallant deeds, their labours and every officer, non-commissioned officer, or private, soldier or seaman I could discover who is mentioned in any dispatch or report or creditable action. I was liberally allowed by the Military and Naval authorities free access to all the documents at the House Guards and Admiralty relating to the Maori War."
