Taratoa and the Code of Conduct book HC86

'Taratoa and the Code of Conduct' picture book by local Tauranga historian and author Debbie McCauley.

'In the early 1860's people around the world were reviewing methods of warfare and improvements to how wounded soldiers from all sides were treated. Tauranga Māori 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 Pā at Pukehinahina (29 April 1864). After the battle the British were stunned, not only by their defeat, but by Māori compassion. This bilingual book tells the story of Taratoa's Code of Conduct and the compassionate actions that resulted.'
