The passing of an eminent Australian military historian: Jeffrey Grey


Just a day or two ago I was blogging about a book  – The Australian Imperial Force: Volume V: The Centenary History of Australia and the Great War of which Professor Jeffrey Grey was the series editor.

Today I opened up The Sydney Morning Herald at breakfast to see his obituary, so that was quite a shock.

His list of achievements, the people he influenced and the military history books he either wrote, co-wrote or edited are a substantial and enduring legacy for the military history and wider community.

I’ve linked here to his full obituary in The Sydney Morning Herald (5 August 2016).

We offer our sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
