Editorial Reviews

Review

“Will suit anyone interested in military history from the soldier’s point of view. ... The real stories of the men who were there bring the history to life on the page.” (The Federalist)

“Fascinating. ... Fills in a lot of the historical context that Nolan so purposefully avoids in his film.” (Under the Radar)

“A story of survival. ... Deserves favorable mention due to its detail, flowing narrative and ground-level storytelling.” (Warfare History Network)

From the Back Cover

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.
