It contains more then 650 entries, written by a wide range of contributors, and covers all of the main campaigns and wars since 1800. It provides numerous profiles of key figures, including Te Rauparaha, Gustavus von Tempsky, Charles Upham, Ettie Rout, Bernard Freyberg, and John Stark. It also describes the weapons and equipment used in New Zealand's military operations, and it features substantial essays on the impact of war on religion, science, technology, and industry, as well as it influence on New Zealand's language, literature, art, and film.
