The Miracle of Dunkirk
4 mai 2020

May-June 2020 marks the 80th anniversary of “the Miracle of Dunkirk”. Between 26 May and 4 June 1940 338,000 Allied soldiers (British, French, Canadian and Belgian) were evacuated from the beaches of Dunkirk to England by an improvised armada of vessels, navy and civilian, narrowly escaping total destruction by the seemingly unstoppable German forces. “Operation Dynamo” remains one of the most extraordinary events of World War II and is considered by many as a turning point in the early stages of the conflict. It gave the Allies, and Great Britain in particular, some well-needed breathing space after weeks of disastrous events.
