Pierre Broué (1926, Privasmarker, ArdèchemarkerJuly 26 2005) was a Frenchmarker historian and Trotskyist. His work covers various topics including the history of the Bolshevik Party, the Spanish Revolution and biographical works on Leon Trotsky. The recent republication of Trotsky's Autobiography, My Life, has a foreword written by Broué.

As a young member of the French Communist Party Broué fought in the French resistance against the Nazi occupiers during the Second World War. When Joseph Stalin disbanded the Comintern in 1943, Broué became strongly critical of Stalinism, resigning from the FCP as a result. He joined the Fourth International and remained a Trotskyist for the rest of his life, active in the Internationalist Communist Party and then the Internationalist Communist Organisation before leaving in 1989. Before 2003 and his death he was a close collaborator of the International Marxist Tendency.

Broué died peacefully in his sleep on the night of the 26th-27th of July, 2005. He was 79 years old.
