About the Author

John Connor is Senior Lecturer and History Discipline Head at the University of New South Wales, Canberra. He is one of Australia's leading military historians and has published widely on World War I. His previous books include The Australian Frontier Wars.


`John Connor's accessible and illuminating reinterpretation of World War I presents that conflict as a fundamentally imperial phenomenon. This was a war fought and ultimately won not only in France, Belgium and Palestine, but in East Africa and New Guinea; in the Indian and Pacific Oceans as well as the Dardanelles and the North Sea; and on the farms of the Canadian prairie, the cattle ranches of Argentina and the sheep stations of Australia, as surely as in the munitions works of Britain. Someone Else's War is a capacious global history of a crisis poorly understood if viewed through a Eurocentric lens.' - Frank Bongiorno, Professor of History, The Australian National University
