Professor Arthur Jacob Marder, C.B.E. (8 March, 1910 – 25 December, 1980) was a naval historian from the United States of America who wrote a large number of well-received books on the history of the British Royal Navy.


Barry Gough commented in his life of Marder:

Marder had always been keen to portray officers as uneducated in thinking about principles of war, something endemic to their training.[1]
