Publisher's Summary

The epic true story of Dunkirk - now a major motion picture written and directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hardy, and Mark Rylance.

The Battle of Dunkirk, in May/June 1940, is remembered as a stunning defeat yet a major victory as well. The Nazis had beaten back the Allies and pushed them across France to the northern port of Dunkirk. In the ultimate race against time, more than 300,000 Allied soldiers were daringly evacuated across the Channel. This moment of German aggression was used by Winston Churchill as a call to Franklin Roosevelt to enter the war. Now historian Joshua Levine explores the real lives of those soldiers, bombed and strafed on the beaches for days on end, without food or ammunition; the civilians whose boats were overloaded; the airmen who risked their lives to buy their companions on the ground precious time; and those who did not escape.

    "This is more about the movie than the event"

    Save your money unless you want to know about the movie in great detail. I expected to hear about the event and too some extent that's true. However, much of this book is about how the movie was made. I waisted my money. I want a refund!

    Story
    "Disappointed"

    I thought this was going to be about what led up to Dunkirk and a more in-depth history of the contribution. Made by small craft. But instead it seems to be about soldiers getting sex. Really! I didn’t finish it and I don’t recommend this book
