Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (A)
Alexander, H. R. L. G. (Earl Alexander of Tunis)

Field Marshall Alexander has been called by authorities "unquestionably the greatest British field commander of the second world war." He commanded the rear guard at Dunkirk, then coordinated the Allied advances in North Africa, which led to the German surrender at Tunis in 1943. He also commanded the forces of many nations that drove the Germans from Sicily, forcing the Italian army to surrender, and eventually liberated all of Italy. Of Ulster-Scottish stock, he had probably directly descended from Scotland’s Royal House of the Isles.
