Dwin Bramall by Michael Tillotson

Book Description

'Dwin' Bramall rose from platoon commander in the campaigns in France, Belgium and Holland in 1944-5 to become professional head of the Army and then Chief of the Defence Staff. His reputation for a sharp mind combined with an engagingly persuasive manner led to his rapid rise through every level of command to that of four-star general. As Chief of the Defence Staff 1982-85, he sought to turn the minds of the single service chiefs away from their fixation with the Soviet threat and towards the growing challenges to Britain's security and national interests arising in the Middle East and Asia. Now a House of Lords cross-bencher, he continues to speak against the failure of successive governments to provide adequate support for the nation's security and argues for the much closer co-ordination of foreign and defence policy.
