David Armine Howarth was a British historian and author. After graduating from Cambridge University, he was a radio war correspondent for BBC at the start of the Second World War. Howarth joined the Navy after the fall of France. He became involved in the Special Operations Executive (SOE) and ultimately in the Shetland Bus, an SOE operation manned by Norwegians running a clandestine route between Shetland and Norway. He was second in command at the Naval base in Shetland. For his successful efforts in the espionage of the German presence in Norway, he received the highest honor a foreigner can obtain from Norway.
After the war he wrote several books about the war in general and of specific events in the war.
