Walter Lord has written a detailed account of the famous evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force (and substantial French forces) from entrapment at Dunkirk near the start of World War II. First, Lord's account is an enjoyable and relatively easy read. The story is bracketed mainly from May 24th to June 3rd, 1940; and is an hour-by-hour account of the fighting, retreat, and seaborne extraction. Lord's descriptions of the chaos, desperation, frustrations, and tragedies associated with war seem to be spot-on; and paint vivid pictures for the reader. He uses numerous short personal stories of the individuals involved (from interviews, diaries, letters, family accounts, etc.) to drive the points home. The willingness and heroics of ordinary British citizens to come to the aid of their armed forces is truly amazing. And Lord pulls no punches, with accounts of cowardice as well as heroism. His research was extensive and expert.
Lord's account will give you great insight into the British psyche. I truly recommend the book to anyone interested in this period's history, or World War II.
