Issue 14 - Operation Dynamo: Dunkirk 80 years on

Operation Dynamo, the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk, began on 26 May and ended on 3 June 1940. Whatever assessment is made of the evacuation, it has become a part of the national consciousness, with the ‘Little Ships’ elevated to the status of heroes for the role they played in helping save the soldiers. Warships and large passenger vessels also played a significant part, as did paddler steamers, tugs, lifeboats and barges that were called to help.
This book provides short histories of well over 200 ships, from ferries to tugs, warships to barges, and little ships to lifeboats that crossed the Channel to save Allied soldiers from the Germans, as well as photographs of many of them.
Unfortunately, the 80th anniversary Return to Dunkirk by the Little Ships, scheduled for May, has been cancelled due to the current restrictions on public events, but this outstanding new book provides anyone interested in the famous evacuation with details of the ships and craft which went to help.
