Henry Jules Jean Maurice Martin (1888-1984) was a French general. (His name is often wrongly written as "Henri," the more common spelling in French.)
In 1940 he commanded the African Infantry 87th Division (in the Sixth Army of General Robert-Auguste Touchon and the Seventh Army of General Aubert Frère) during the Battle of France on the Ailette, where he took an active part in the defense of the Aisne, then retreated to the Seine and the Loire. He was then at the head of the Marrakech Division and the 4th Moroccan Mountain Division before taking command of the 1st Corps, in which capacity he commanded French troops during the liberation of Corsica in September–October 1943 and of the island of Elba in June 1944. Between 1944 and 1946, he was commander of the 19th Corps in Algeria, notably during the Sétif massacres.
