Gorch Foch is the pseudonym of the German author Johann Wilhelm Kinau (22nd August 1880 - 31st May 1916). Other pseudonyms were Jakob Holst and Giorgio Focco.

Kinau was born the eldest child of fisherman Heinrich Wilhelm Kinau and his wife Mette Holst on the Elbe Island Finkenwerder near Hamburg. In 1895 he was apprenticed to his uncle, the merchant August Kinau in Geestemunde(today part of Bremerhaven) and from 1897 to 1898 he attended a commercial school in Bremerhaven. Later he was employed as  accountant in Meiningen, Bremen, Halle(Saale) and from 1907 at the shipping company "Hamburg-Amerika Line" in Hamburg. He married Rosa Elizabeth Reich in1908, with whom he had three children.

In the First World War Kinau was drafted to the German Infantry in 1915. He fought in Serbia and Russia and later at Verdun. From 1916 he served in the German Navy. He died in the sinking of the German cruiser SMS Wiesbaden in the Battle of Jutland. His bodywas found on the Swedish shore near Fjallbacka and interred on the island of Stensholmen with the other German and British servicemen.

In 1904 Kinau started publishing poetry and Stories in his native Low Saxon Language. In 1913 he published his most popular work Seefahrt ist not , in which he describes his lif as a deepsea fisherman of his home island
