PAUL HAM is a historian specialising in war, conflict and politics. Born and raised in Sydney, Paul has spent his working life in London, Sydney and Paris. His books have been published to critical acclaim in Australia, Britain, the United States and many other countries, and have won several literary awards.

Paul has co-written two ABC documentaries based on his work: 'Kokoda', a 2-part series on the defeat of the Japanese army in Papua in 1942, shortlisted for the New York Documentary prize; and 'All the Way', a feature documentary about Australia's alliance with America during the Vietnam War, which he also narrated, and which received the UN's Media Peace prize. A former correspondent for The Sunday Times, Paul has a Masters degree in Economic History from the London School of Economics and Political Science. He lives in Paris, with frequent trips to Sydney and London, and takes time off now and then to produce the Big Fat Poetry Pig-Out, an annual poetry recital, for charity.
