Do you have diaries or pictures from any relatives or friends who were involved in the battle or evacuation?
Surrounded by the German army, Allied forces became stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk. The evacuation, known as Operation Dynamo, called for all available help to rescue the soldiers. Among those who responded were civilians with small vessels such as fishing boats and car ferries. Over 300,000 soldiers were rescued and the evacuation was hailed as a “miracle” by Winston Churchill.
