The German advance of 1940 and the miraculous rescue of the British Expeditionary Force from the Dunkirk beaches has been described in several famous books but this dramatic first-hand account has not been readily available in the United States. In addition to unforgettable accounts of day-to-day actions, the author offers perceptive observations on the inefficiency and unpreparedness of the British authorities in the face of German aggression.
