About

This is the story of Haane Manahi and his exceptional bravery in Tunisia during the Second World War.

At the Battle of Takrouna, Tunisia, Sergeant Haane Manahi of Te Arawa led a small group of Maori soldiers who captured a fortress on a 200-metre pinnacle that was being held by at least 200 enemy soldiers.

While Haane Manahi was recommended for a VC by seven officers, the award was mysteriously downgraded to a Distinguished Conduct Medal. Until now, little has been known about who made this decision or for what reasons.

Well illustrated with b&w and colour photos.
