Operation Dynamo: Miracle of Dunkirk
25-27 May 2018, £549 plus £45 per night single room supplement, where applicable. Places available.
In May 1940 the Germans conducted the ‘Blitzkrieg in the West’ and, after reaching the Channel, the Germans swung north along the coast threatening to capture the ports and trap the British and French forces before they could evacuate to Britain. Controversially the army were to halt for three days, giving the Allies time to organise an evacuation and build a defensive line. Despite the Allies’ gloomy estimates of the situation, with Britain discussing a conditional surrender to Germany, in the end over 330,000 Allied troops were rescued.
