David John Cawdell Irving (born 24 March 1938) is an English author and Holocaust denier. He has written on the military and political history of World War II, with a focus on Nazi Germany.

His works include The Destruction of Dresden (1963), Hitler's War (1977), Churchill's War (1987) and Goebbels: Mastermind of the Third Reich (1996).

In his works, he argued that Adolf Hitler did not know of the extermination of Jews or, if he did, opposed it. His works were never taken seriously by mainstream historians.
