I was saddened to hear about the death of Martin Middlebrook today. Most people can point to two or three individuals who, outside of family, have had a profound impact on their life. For me, one of those people was Martin Middlebrook whom I first met through my father in the 1980s. There are three occasions when acts of kindness by Martin had a particular influence on my interest in military history and for which I am very grateful. Indeed, had I not known Martin I may not have ended up doing a Masters in the subject. Let me elucidate.
