Dunkirk: The History Behind The Major Motion Picture

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE FROM CHRISTOPHER NOLAN The epic history of Dunkirk, May 1940: when more than 300,000 trapped Allied troops were dramatically rescued from destruction at the hands of Nazi Germany by an extraordinary seaborne evacuation. The true history of the soldiers, sailors, airmen and civilians involved in the evacuation during the nine days from 27 May?4 June 1940 has passed into legend. Now the subject of an epic motion picture from director Christopher Nolan, starring Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and Mark Rylance ? the story Winston Churchill described as a 'miracle' is narrated by bestselling author Joshua Levine in its full, sweeping context. Including new interviews with veterans and survivors, this book goes behind the scenes to explore the real lives of those soldiers, bombed and strafed on the beaches for days on end, without food and ammunition; the civilians whose boats were overloaded; the airmen who risked their lives to buy their companions on the ground precious time; and those who did not escape. Told from the viewpoints of land, sea and air, Joshua Levine?s Dunkirk is a dramatic account of this glorious defeat. *This book may have remainder mark*
