New Zealand supported Britain's declaration of war. In 1940 Savage died and was replaced by Peter Fraser. The war enabled the Labour government to negotiate favorable export arrangements for New Zealand's agricultural products. New Zealand troops, including a Maori battalion that became a focus for Maori pride, fought mainly in Europe and the Middle East. A war cabinet containing ministers from both parties administered the country. (See New Zealand, 1945–2000)  1
