[what is this?]

Martin Beheim-Schwarzbach (* in London; in Hamburg) was a German-British writer, chess player and translator. In London he worked as a factory worker, a journalist, an employee at the BBC and finally as an editor. He was active in the London Chess Club, where he made acquaintance with several British top players, in particular Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander.

After the end of the Second World War, he returned in 1946 as a British officer in occupied Hamburg, where he was responsible for the newspaper "Die Welt" on behalf of the military government.
