Field Marshall Alan Brooke

Recommended Posts

Today is the birthday of Alan Brooke 23rd July 1883- 21st June 1963

Brooke was Churchill's choice to lead Operation Overlord. And he would have, had Roosevelt not spat his dummy out, and insisted on Eisenhower.

Born into a wealthy family, Brooke was a people's soldier, he seemed to instinctively know what stuff his men were made of. http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/2WWbrookeA.htm
