Professor Peter Stanley
Prof. Peter Stanley of UNSW Canberra is one of Australia's most active military historians. He has published over 40 books, mainly in the field of Australian military history. One of his special interests is the history of the armies of British India, and in 2015 he published the first book on the Indian Army's part in the Gallipoli campaign, Die in Battle, Do not Despair: the Indians on Gallipoli, 1915 (Helion & Co., UK, 2015, reprinted 2021). It was based on research in Australia, Britain, India, Nepal and Turkey, and drew on Sikh community history. Prof. Stanley is now working on a book specifically on the Sikh experience of Gallipoli, in association with the Fateh Foundation: 'May I Die Fighting'.
