Dr Andrew Syk was an ERC Postdoctoral Fellow in 2009-2010. His research focused on the role of state-sponsored paramilitary organisations within wider British Imperial policing after 1918, as part of the ERC-funded project on the ERC-funded project 'Paramilitary Violence after the Great War (1917-1923)'. His earlier doctoral research at Oxford focused on the Mesopotamia campaign during the First World War and the importance of 'command' in explaining the initial failure and subsequent success of the Indian Army in that theatre. He is currently editing the papers of General Sir Stanley Maude (Commander in Chief Mesopotamia 1916-17) for publication by the Army Records Society. He is also Visiting Research Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute.
