Bogarde was the elder of two sons born to Ulric van den Margaret Niven. Ulric was born in Birmingham, of Flemish ancestry, he was Art Editor of The Times. Margaret Niven was Scottish, from Glasgow, was a former actress.

Dirk Bogarde was born in a nursing home at West Hampstead, London. He was baptised on 30 October 1921 at Kilburn, his brother, Gareth Ulric Van Den Bogaerde, an advertising film producer, was born in July 1933, in Hendon. He had a younger sister, Elizabeth. Conditions in the family home in North London became cramped and Bogarde was moved to Glasgow to stay with relatives of his mother, he stayed there for over three years, returning at the end of 1937. He attended University College School, the former Allan Glen's High School of Science in Glasgow, a time he described in his autobiography as an unhappy one. From 1937 to 1938 he studied at the Chelsea School of Art, he began his acting career on stage in 1939, shortly before the start of the Second World War, with his first on-screen appearance being as an uncredited extra in the George Formby comedy, Come On George!. During the war, Derek "Pip" Bogaerde served in the British Army with the Royal Corps of Signals before being commissioned at the age of 22 into the Queen's Royal Regiment as a second lieutenant in 1943.

He served in both the Pacific theatres, principally as an intelligence officer. Taylor Downing's book Spies in the Sky tells of his work with a specialist Army unit that accompanied air force units for the interpreting of aerial photo-reconnaissance information, after D-Day moving to Normandy with RCAF units which by July 1944 were located at the "B.8" airfield at Sommervieu, near Bayeux. As an "Air Photographic Interpreter" with the rank of captain, subsequently major, he was with the headquarters of the Second Army where he selected ground targets in France and Germany, for the Second Tactical Air Force and RAF Bomber Command to attack. In a 1986 Yorkshire Television interview with Russell Harty, Bogarde said: "I went to see quite a lot of them", "I mean I went back to the villages, saw what I had done. I used to go painting, as you know, when I had any time off, I went to one village in Normandy, painted it, because I had picked it and it was a waste of time, because everybody" "had got through," "and I found what I had thought in the rubble were a whole row of footballs, they weren't footballs—I was sitting right beside them, painting—and they weren't footballs, they were children's heads, what it was, I discovered was a whole school of kids, a convent, had been pulled out of school, out of class, lined up in this little narrow alleyway between the buildings to save them from the bombing, the whole thing had come in on top of them, plus the nuns, but by that time they were lice-ridden, there was nothing.

I can talk about it now at 65 because it's sort of, dispassionate about it, I've seen worse things since, but that gave me a bit of a turn, yes, I didn't enjoy that. A row of kids' heads that you thought were footballs and you kick one and it wasn't, it rolled away down the rubble." Bogarde was one of the first Allied officers in April 1945 to reach the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany, an experience that had the most profound effect on him and about which he found it difficult to speak for many years afterward. "I think it was on the 13th of April—I'm not quite sure what the date was" "—in'44" "when we opened up Belsen Camp, the first concentration camp any of us had seen, we didn't know what they were, we'd heard vague rumours that they were. I mean; the gates were opened and I realised that I was looking at Dante's Inferno, I mean... I... I still haven't seen anything as dreadful, and never will. And a girl came up who spoke English, because she recognised one of the badges, she... her breasts were like, sort of, empty purses, she had no top on, a pair of man's pyjamas, you know, the prison pyjamas, no hair.

But I knew. She was I suppose, oh I don't know, twenty four, twenty five, we talked, she was, you know, so excited and thrilled, all around us there were mountains of dead people, I mean mountains of them, they were s

Douds' quarterback on the undefeated teams of 1975 and 1976 was Mike Terwilliger. Terwilliger joined Douds coaching staff after graduating, has been Douds' assistant coach for more than 30 years.

In 2006, Mike Terwilliger said of Douds, "The man hasn't changed any of his beliefs, any of his principles or the way he coaches football. What separates him from a lot of people around the game of football is that he realizes his job is bigger than what takes place on Saturday afternoons; the neat thing is to see guys came back after 30, 35 years and see the impact he's had on their lives."Terwilliger's son, Jimmy Terwilliger played quarterback for Douds. The younger Terwilliger won the 2005 Harlon Hill Trophy and set 12 NCAA records at ESU, including tying the NCAA record for all levels with 148 career touchdown passes and setting a new Division II record with 16,064 yards of total offense; the 2005 East Stroudsburg team with Terwilliger at quarterback broke the school record with 11 wins, won the Lambert Trophy and produced five All-America selections.

On the eve of his 200th win, Douds said, "I never scored a touchdown, never made a tackle, never threw a block, never threw a pass; this represents a great tribute to the thousands of guys who have played here, the 100 or so coaches who have been with me here in that tenure." As he neared the PSAC coaching wins record, the Associated Press opened its story on Douds' drive to the PSAC coaching wins record as follows:"Quick, name the Pennsylvania college football coach climbing a career wins list who has spent decades at the same university. The one not named Joe Paterno. He's East Stroudsburg coach Denny Douds, a victory away from having the most wins in Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference history." Interviewed in 2006, Douds said. Asked if he would still be coaching at age 82, like fellow Pennsylvania coaching legend, Joe Paterno, Douds responded, "Am I still breathing at that time?"
