About the Author

Brian Izzard was a Fleet Street journalist, feature writer and news sub-editor for many years, working latterly on the Daily Express and the Sunday Express. This is his fifth book.


Brian Izzard has written a fascinating and complete biography that is a delight to read of the man described as the "mastermind of amphibious operations". Very highly recommended. * Warships World 09/07/2020 *
Brian Izzard has written a splendid, much needed and long overdue full biography of Admiral Ramsay, with access to far more material, significant amounts of it formerly classified, than that available to WS Chalmers with his much earlier biography, written sixty years ago. But the book also includes an excellent history of Operation Dynamo, the amazing story of the Dunkirk evacuation, it is the best account that I have read of that incredible strategic rescue of the BEF (British Expeditionary Force). * Scuttlebutt 12/06/2020 *
This excellent modern biography is long overdue, superbly written and will hopefully help restore the worthy prominence owed to one of Britain's greatest naval officers. * Britain at War Magazine *
''This is a fascinating... account of a great admiral's life and times.'' * Warships International *
This is a thoroughly enjoyable book, easy to read, and informative. * Naval Review 05/07/2021 *
Well and attractively written and a good read. * Navy News *
This reviewer is firmly of the opinion that many of the best histories are written by journalists or former journalists. This book is no exception. The author is a journalist of vast experience who also happens to write great military history. He certainly has a talent for weaving a fascinating and readable tale ... [a] quite personal but very inspiring biography. * Baird Maritime 11/06/2020 *
