Martin Middlebrook (born 1932) is a British military historian and Fellow of the
Royal Historical Society.
He wrote his first book The First Day on the Somme (1971) following a visit to the
First World War battlefields of France and Belgium in 1967. This detailed study of
the single worst day for the British Army remains a classic. Middlebrook gave the
same single-day treatment to 21 March 1918, the opening of the German Spring Offensive,
in The Kaiser's Battle.
Middlebrook's Second World War books concentrate on the air war. A number of them again
deal with a single day of action (The Nuremberg Raid, The Schweinfurt-Regensburg Mission
and The Peenemünde Raid) while others cover longer air battles (The Battle of Hamburg
and The Berlin Raids).
Middlebrook also wrote two books on the Falklands War, one from the British perspective
and one from the Argentine perspective.
Middlebrook has a daughter living in Calgary, Alberta. One of his uncles, Sergeant Andrew Crick,
who served with the 1/4th Lincolns of the 46th (North Midland) Division, was fatally
wounded in October 1915.
