Over the course of his 75 year career Field Marshal Bramall – or Dwin as he is universally known – has been in the forefront of military thinking. Clearly destined to reach the pinnacle of his profession he shone in a succession of prestigious appointments both in command and on the staff. He fought in Normandy, saw active service in Ireland and Borneo and masterminded the Falklands Campaign.

As this unique collection of personal Papers , dating from the 1950s to the present day, testify, Bramall has never shied away from controversy or original thought, whether on low level leadership or higher military strategy.

His views are far from predictable or trenchant as demonstrated by his changing nuclear stance and his clearly argued opposition in the House of Lords to intervention in Iraq.

The publication of this unique collection of letters, lectures, speeches and theses on a wide range of topics gives the reader the opportunity to delve into a rich mine of sound military thinking and common sense.

Bramall is one of a kind: a brave and talented soldier who became the finest military theorist of his generation. His sage words should be required reading for politicians of all hues.

Saul David – The Daily Telegraph

A wonderful book, consisting of speeches, reflections and memories by our most distinguished field marshal.

The Tablet, 9th December 2017 – chosen by A.N.Wilson

The Bramall Papers are in their way a unique anthology of strategic and tactical wisdom. They ought perhaps to be inscribed with the words of Caesar Augustus: ‘Young men, hear an old man to whom old men hearkened when he was young.'
