Dr. Mark Johnston has established himself as one of the foremost authorities on the Australian Army in World War II. He was described in the Australian War Memorial's Wartime magazine as 'the leading historian on the experience of Australian soldiers during the war.' He is Head of History at Scotch College, Melbourne, and author of twelve books, including An Australian Band of Brothers (NewSouth, 2018).
'Few historians would be better suited to writing about the soldiers' battles, weapons and equipment during the Second World War than Mark Johnston. Over the past decade he has become the leading historian on the experience of Australian soldiers during the war.' --Karl James, Wartime Magazine
