Peter Cooke and John Crawford - The Territorials

From Sunday Morning, 8:40 am on 20 November 2011

Citizen soldiering has been part of our history since the first years of colonial settlement. In the book 'The Territorials: The History of the Territorial and Volunteer Forces of New Zealand', Peter Cooke and John Crawford have charted the story of volunteer soldiers since the early militias set up in the 1830s, and explored what makes everyday men and women sign up.
