A candid and comprehensive overview that should satisfy those who are curious to learn more about the Dunkirk evacuation after having seen Christopher Nolan's film.
The first third of the book explains how the British Expeditionary Force got into the predicament at Dunkirk in the first place. Ill preparation, poor decision-making, communication breakdown, duplicity between Allies, disreputable behavior and rotten luck all make it a shocking read.
It's also eye-opening to learn about the significant contributions of the French to the success of the evacuation, which was not included in the narrative of the Nolan film.
