Educated at Grocer's Company School, Hackney Downs, Austin enlisted in the London Rifle Brigade in August 1914 and received his commission in September. He served overseas with the British Expeditionary Force for two years. He left the army with the rank of captain in 1919. Much of his later work was influenced by his wartime experiences. He correctly predicted the future of mechanized war well before the outbreak of World War Two. In addition to his many novels, Austin also produced many short stories. His works include In Action: Studies of War (1913), According to Orders (1918), The War-God Walks Again (1926), When Mankind Was Young (1927), A Saga of the Sword (1928), A Saga of the Sea (1929), Tomorrow (1930) and The Red Flag (1932).
