Ron Austin has written 16 books and this one draws on years of research into the
Gallipoli campaign. Inspired by the fact that his father landed with the 8th Battalion
at Anzac Cove on 25th April, Ron has for many years pursued a keen interest in
military history. He has a degree in Asian History/Sociology. His long involvement
with the Somme village of Herleville was recognised by the presentation in 2008 of
the UNC medaille d'or du merite. Since "The White Gurkhas" was published some 20
years ago Ron and his wife Sue have built up Slouch Hat Productions into an
established publishing house producing quality books on Australian military history.
