Martin King is a highly qualified British Military Historian/Lecturer who’s had the honour of reintroducing many US and British veterans to the WWII battlefields where they fought. He lives in Belgium near Antwerp where he spends his time writing and visiting European battlefields, and he speaks fluent German, Dutch, Italian and French.

In 2008 Martin left his job as a lecturer in European history at the University of Antwerp to work as a Historical Consultant for The History Channel. He also chose to focus on researching and writing about individuals and the battlefields on which they served and is frequently in demand by the US military and NATO for lectures and staff tours.  He has also acted as researcher and presented series for the Military Channel in the United States, and the Discovery Channel in Europe.

Martin's first book, Voices of the Bulge, co-written with his long-time friend Michael Collins, was published in 2011 to great critical acclaim.  His latest book, The Tigers of Bastogne: Voices of the 10th Armored Division during the Battle of the Bulge, also with co-author Michael Collins, will be published on 19 May, 2013 by Casemate Publishing (USA).

The Tigers of Bastogne
The gallant stand of the 101st Airborne Division at Bastogne has long become part of historical and media legend. But how many students of the war realize there was already a U.S. unit holding the town when they arrived? And this unit—the 10th Armored Division—continued to play a major role in its defense throughout the German onslaught.In The Tigers of Bastogne, authors King and Collins finally detail the travails of this young armored division, which had only arrived in Europe that fall, yet found itself subject to the full brunt of Manteuffel’s Fifth Panzer Army in the Ardennes.
