D-day’s ‘forgotten man’
admiral sir bertram ramsay was part of general eisenhower’s inner circle during the months and years of top secret planning that led to the allied invasion, launched on june 6, 1944.
ramsay was in overall command of operation neptune, the unimaginably complex naval and landing operations of d-day, as more than 4,000 ships and landing craft, nearly 200,000 men and thousands of aircraft took part in the first wave of normandy landings.
however, ramsay has become one of d-day’s forgotten men; a fatal plane crash in 1945 robbing him of the chance of penning his memoirs or taking his place alongside other venerated allied leaders such as eisenhower and churchill.
