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.


What the Critics Say

A wonderful insight into one of the most astounding events in our history. Full of personal accounts, and reports of how events played out. However, Sometimes it doesn't really convey the scope of the Fear and terror that would mostly likely have been experienced there. The narrator was excellent but I found the American accent a bit distracting from the distinctly British story at first, it took a bit of getting used to at the start.

My Father survived.

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