Rylie E. Vavra

Dr. Timothy C. Winegard received his master's degree in war studies from the Royal Military College of Canada and his doctorate in history from the University of Oxford. He served as an officer with the Canadian Forces, including an attachment to the British Army. Winegard is internationally published in the fields of both military history and indigenous studies.

His books include "The First World Oil War," "For King and Kanata: Canadian Indians and the First World War," "Indigenous Peoples of the British Dominions and the First World War" and "Oka: A Convergence of Cultures and the Canadian Forces."
