Professor Jeff Grey (1959–2016) was one of Australia’s most notable military historians, whose visibility overseas, and especially in North America, was if anything greater than at home. In a career sadly cut short, he wrote, co-wrote or edited more than thirty books, published many articles and reviews, and influenced hundreds of undergraduate and postgraduate history students at UNSW Canberra and its precursors, where he taught for more than thirty years.

In Jeff Grey: A Life in History, former colleagues, counterparts, collaborators and postgraduate candidates offer reflections and reminiscences on Jeff’s life and career. They look at Jeff as a colleague, his obsession with sport, his interest in official history, the relationships he formed beyond Australia and the historical profession, his place in broader Australian historiography and his contribution to recognising frontier conflict as a part of Australian military history. Jeff Grey: A Life in History includes the first attempt to record his prolific output as a writer.
