WW2 - The Battle of Dunkirk
The Battle of Dunkirk took place in May 1940 and saw the entire British army evacuated from the beaches of France. It was a vital moment in WW2 that gave Britain the opportunity to continue fighting Nazi Germany. Many small British fishing boats helped in the evacuation and it has become one of the most famous episodes of the war.
