    I've read a number of these 'One Hour Histories." Some I like and some not so much. This one is a keeper. Quote: "The British war office sent out notice to the British public that seafaring vessels were needed to rescue soldiers. And the Brits responded, crossing the English Channel in everything from ferries to fishing boats to yachts as the skies over Dunkirk were alight with flames from the bombing. While the Luftwaffe attacked from the skies, the "Little Ships" made their way to the beaches, I've read a number of these 'One Hour Histories." Some I like and some not so much.

While the Luftwaffe attacked from the skies, the "Little Ships" made their way to the beaches, picking up troops patiently waiting in water up to their shoulders. The War Office hoped that the civilian fleet would be able to rescue 50,000 soldiers, but in a heroic feat of daring and endurance, over 300,000 troops were brought safely to British shores."

    I have to say that this was my least favorite book by Hourly History, so far. Though I really appreciate the reading the history surrounding (before and after) the event-- little about Dunkirk and the rescues (evacuations) is revealed here. I know Hourly History tries to stick with facts and avoids emotional involvement but I wish that some individual stories had been included. At the very least more details regarding the timeline of the 'miracle of Dunkirk' that led to the 'Dunkirk-spirit' that I have to say that this was my least favorite book by Hourly History, so far.

    World War II Dunkirk: A History From Beginning to End The history of Dunkirk was relatively unknown to me other than it was an evacuation during World War II. This short book was written with the information needed to inform a reader with facts, no heroes, no dialogue, no photographs. It was excellent!

    Excellent For a short book it details the events at Dunkirk very well. As someone with a military background, who has visited Dunkirk, this book was very well written and captures the scene brilliantly. Starting from how the BEF, France and Belgium actually ended up in Dunkirk and then through the evacuation and beyond. Well worth a read.

    Their Memory Survives Well written, a good read, but essentially World War II Dunkirk offers an overview. The author fails to capture the humanity of the heroics of this moment in history. And perhaps this is all the author intended. But thank God that the British, French, Belgic and Poles who were there intended so much more. Slighted perhaps, but their memory lives on.

    WwII. dunkirk This is a very well written synopsis Of the military retreat to Dunkirk to escape from the advancing German army and aircraft. It reveals just how chaotic the retreat was and how close they (allies) came to not making it. Well written.

    I know this is a short book that woauld not cover to much detail but, there are very important errors and generalizations that make the book miss its marks. Hourly History generraly has good books the serve as entry points to different subjects, but this one is not one of them.

    This book shows that the events surrounding the evacuation of British and French troops through Dunkirk can inspire any generation faced with a ruthless and powerful enemy.
