Major (Cedric) John Foley MBE (7 March 1917 – 8 November 1974) was a British soldier and author.

He was educated at St Mary's College, Crosby and the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. A regular soldier between 1936 and 1954, he was made MBE for his services to the Royal Armoured Corps during the Second World War.

His love of tanks was reflected in The Boilerplate War, a book of recollections of the early days of armoured warfare, and Mailed Fist, telling of his tank exploits in Normandy in 1944. He drew on his military experience in several other successful novels, including Death of a Regiment and Bull and Brass.
