    Hastings Lionel Ismay quotes Showing of 1 “The purpose of the NATO alliance is "to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down.” ― Lord Ismay. Lord Ismay would warn about what happens when NATO withers on the vine: Russian is a bit in, America is somewhat out, and Germany more up than down.

    In late , Ismay published his own Memoirs, which include a prefatory Tribute from Churchill "to the signal services which Lord Ismay has rendered to our country, and to the free world, in peace and war." It is poignant that Ismay sought Churchill s first published book so soon after the death of his friend and so near to his own.
