Product description

The evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) from Dunkirk is one of the most dramatic and famous episodes of the Second World War. "Dunkirk 1940" assesses Operation Dynamo from start to finish, with reference to the plans, forces and operations involved. It is a unique and comprehensive compilation of all the facts with excellent illustrations, photographs and maps detailing every significant event in the Operation. For the first time in military literature this title discusses the theory that the results of Dynamo largely depended on the results of an 'asymmetric' battle.

Review quote

"If you want insight into an operation that has not really had that much written about it, or just a fascinating read, then this is the book for you. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and I'm sure you will as well." - Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness "In contrast to other histories, this provides a description of the operation from a strategy perspective, detailing overlapping struggles and results to fill in many gaps. Any military library specializing in World War II needs this." -"The Midwest Book Review"
