Biographical history

Frederick Britten Austin was a writer who was particularly interested in the theme of war and served in the Great War as a captain. His first novel was The Shaping of Lavinia (1911), which was about the marriage of a young woman. But one of his main interests was warfare: the first of the books on this theme was In Action: Studies of War in 1913. Austin also wrote a number of collections of short stories on a particular theme, which range from the prehistoric past to the present today.
