Issue Date: Aug-2007
Series/Report no.: Series 1345 Oral Histories and Interviews;
Abstract: Trevor Wilson taught history at the University of Adelaide from the early 1960s until his retirement in 1993, and continued to teach undergraduate and honours classes and supervise postgraduate students for many years after retiring. He has authored some of the most renowned texts on the Great War, and his first military focussed book The Myriad Faces of War: Britain and the Great War, 1914-1918 published in 1986, is internationally recognised as revolutionary in its treatment of the topic of war. In 2003 a symposium entitled The War, Government and Society – affectionately known as the 'Trevfest' – was held at the University in honour of Professor Wilson's contribution to the study of twentieth-century military, political and social history. Trevor was appointed an Honorary Member (AM) in the General Division of the Order of Australia in 2007 in recognition of his service to education in the area of World War I military history through teaching, writing and historical research.
