Publisher's Summary

The movie Dunkirk premiered in 2017, decades after the event that turned certain defeat into a military miracle that inspired the people of Great Britain. The epic saga of the ordinary British civilians who sailed across the English Channel to rescue their trapped soldiers, while the German military launched its might to prevent the evacuation, is a stirring tale.

The British government hoped that perhaps the mini-armada would be able to rescue 50,000 troops, but the 861 vessels who responded to their country’s plea brought more than 300,000 soldiers safely home. The film has garnered awards and earned the impressive rank of the highest-grossing World War II film of all time. But even more stirring than cinema is the true story of the events that unfolded in the embattled port of Dunkirk, where, against all odds, the British Army was rescued from Hitler’s forces by a fleet of “Little Ships” determined to bring their boys home.

Inside you will hear about:

  • Britannia rules the waves
  • The Phoney War
  • Defending the perimeter
  • The "Little Ships"
  • The "Dunkirk Spirit" 
  • And much more!
