Publisher's Summary

The full inside story of one of the golden moments of World War II.On May 24, 1940, Hitler's armies were on the brink of a shattering military victory. Only 10 miles away, 400,000 Allied troops were pinned against the coast of Dunkirk. But just 11 days later, 338,000 men had been successfully evacuated to England. How did it happen? Walter Lord's remarkable account of how "the miracle of Dunkirk" came about is based on hundreds of interviews with survivors of all nations who fought among the sand dunes of northern France.

My Father survived.

Brilliant book. Pity no English or British reader was available. This poor American chap struggled with pronunciation! Still a great read.

so disappointed

What did you like best about The Miracle of Dunkirk? What did you like least?

What is a story about Britishness and our spirit, courage and what it takes to wind us up. the Dunkirk spirit is our battle cry. so why did someone think is was a good idea to have a heavy accented american to read it, then realise halfway through to tone it down, that apart from the mispronunciations. how would an american feel about an an Blue Blood reading the story of the Alamo?

How could the performance have been better?

Not being an american!!!

Did The Miracle of Dunkirk inspire you to do anything?
