Peter Stanley Biography

Peter Stanley is a famous Military Historian, who was born on October 28, 1956 in Australia. Stanley has been a major participant in several public debates over history. He strongly contested the idea that there was a “Battle for Australia” in 1942, disagreeing opinions that events in Darwin in 1942 during the Second World War represented Japan’s intention to invade Australia. He argues that the wartime slogan of a ‘battle for Australia’, used by John Curtin in February 1942 in anticipating invasion by Japan, was taken up in the mid-1990s and applied unjustifiably. These ideas he has developed in his 2008 book Invading Australia. As President of ‘Honest History’, he has criticised the excesses of the centenary of the Great War and the return toward ‘Anzackery’ in Australian commemoration. According to Astrologers, Peter Stanley's zodiac sign is Capricorn.

Stanley was born in Liverpool, England on 28 October 1956 to Albert Edward Stanley and his wife Marjorie Patricia. The family emigrated to Australia in 1966 and settled in the South Australian city of Whyalla, where Stanley was educated at the local high school. In 1975, he relocated to Canberra to attend the Australian National University (ANU). After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in 1977, Stanley gained a Graduate Diploma of Education from the Canberra College of Advanced Education (now the University of Canberra), and initially embarked on a career as a secondary teacher; a decision he later termed a career “false start”. He abandoned teaching to assume a position at the Australian War Memorial in 1980, and returned to the ANU to complete a Bachelor of Letters (1984) and a Doctor of Philosophy (1993).

Stanley also writes as a freelance author. One of his most recent military history books, surveying the Australian experience of the Great War, is told entirely through the lives and words of people called Smith or Schmidt – Digger Smith and Australia’s Great War published by Murdoch/Pier 9 in October 2011.
