 Alan Brooke, 1st Viscount Alanbrooke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Brooke was offered command of British forces in the Middle East, which he declined, believing that that he ought to remain in Britain to prevent Churchill from leading the country into any foolhardy military adventures, a decision that was undoubtedly in the best interests of Britain and her Allies.
Nevertheless, Brooke's masterful command of the priorities of strategic planning, and of the importance of co-operation among disparate allies, as well as his instinctive knowledge of the various field commanders under his control made him a pivotal figure at the highest levels of the Allied command.
As CIGS, Brooke was the functional head of the Army, and as head of the Chiefs of Staff Committee, which he dominated by force of intellect and personality, he was responsible for the overall strategic direction of the war effort.

 LHCMA catalogue: ALANBROOKE - brief list
There are a few additional papers relating to Brooke's earlier service in World War Two, notably memoranda on his discussions with French High Command on the possibility of establishing a new British Expeditionary Force (BEF) in North West France, Jun 1940 (see 4/3), and photographs of Brooke as Commander-in-Chief, Home Forces, 1940-1941 (see 13/2-3).
Retirement also left Brooke more time to pursue his favourite hobby of bird-watching, and there are several files of correspondence and papers relating to ornithological expeditions made by Brooke during the 1950s (see 7/25-38).
In 1951 the Royal Regiment of Artillery commissioned Bryant to write an official full-length biography of Brooke and appointed Mrs Long to collect and prepare research material for it, although it was not actually to be written until after Brooke's death.
