Aside from the relevant general histories being constantly released, there's been a number of specifically military histories of the colonial Australian frontier since Connor's book was published, such as 'The Sydney Wars', by Dr Stephen Gapps, 'The Vandemonian War', by Nick Brodie, and, most recently, 'The Battle of One Tree Hill', by Ray Kerkhove and Frank Uhr.

There was also a two-part article in WI by Rolf Grein (Happy Wanderer), based on the material on the subject on his blog.
