the Maori Battalions......http://www.natlib.govt.nz/collection...battalion-1946..... were feared during the wars by whatever enemy they were up against as they were feirce fighters, unfortunatly modern maori now make up 15% of the population and 50% of the prison population the young maori tend nowdays to identify with LA gang culture and we have several Maori gangs that are heavily into drugs/violent crime etc.....the vidio is worth watching....http://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/2008/05/mo...mob_video.html

"Many American soldiers were injured during this affray and at least two were killed."

Jim,

Strikes me as a bit odd that New Zealand casualties aren't mentioned at all.

Sounds like an innocent impromptu game of rugby. The injuries were the results of the Americans failing to pad-up in time for the rucks
