Dwin Bramall: The Authorised Biography

£8.99

Product description

In more than sixty years of service, Field Marshal The Lord Bramall rose through emery level of command, from a platoon in the second world war to four star Commander-in Chief. he served the far East and the Middle East and commanded armoured division in the British of the Rhine before becoming head of the army and then Chief of the defence Staff. Six months before the 2003 invasion of Iraq he warned that such a conflict would produce the vary display of massive, dynamic United States activity that provides one of the mainsprings of motivation for terrorist action in the Middle East-and ,far from advancing the war against terrorism: It would make matters infinitely worse. And It has.

As a junior officer, Dwin Bramall fought with the 60th Rifles in Normandy and Belgium, where he was twice wounded and awarded the Military Cross. His reputation for a sharp mind combined with an engagingly persuasive manor led to his rapid rise in the army. Appointed commander of the Fifth Air portable Brigade in 1967 he began to develop his thesis on indirect military influence; which would have future implications for the formulation of Britain's foreign and defence policies.

The Falklands experience in which he was closely involved, highlighted the need to look beyond the soviet threat to Britain's interests around the globe. As chief of the defence staff 1982-1985, he sought to turn the single service chiefs of staff away from soviet threat 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 question the measures taken for the nation's security and argues for a much closer coordination of foreign and defence policy.

This book is in excellent condition throughout. The dust jacket has not been price clipped.
