Topic type:

In 2014 a special Historical Review magazine issue focused on the Battle of Gate Pa (29 April 2014).

Dedicated to Jinty Rorke (1942-2014), this special edition of the Historical Review is an outstanding contribution to the commemoration of 150 years since the Battle of Gate Pa at Pukehinahina (29 April 1864). The cover is bright and attractive in itself and the layout inside superb.
