Reginald William Winchester Wilmot (21 June 1911 - 10 January 1954) was an Australian war correspondent who reported for the BBC and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation during the Second World War. After the war he continued to work as a broadcast reporter, and wrote a well-appreciated book about the liberation of Europe. He was killed in the crash of a BOAC Comet over the Mediterranean Sea. After the end of the war Wilmot remained in England, where he wrote articles on the recent war as well as a book about World War II, The Struggle for Europe. When it appeared in 1952, the book was favourably reviewed, and it is well regarded by military historians (John Keegan wrote, "Wilmot effectively invented the modern method of writing contemporary military history").
