DUNKIRK: 'THE STORMS OF WAR'., Harris, John.

Author Name    Harris, John.

Title   DUNKIRK: 'THE STORMS OF WAR'.

Publisher    David & Charles, Newton Abbot, 1980.

Seller ID   18118

160 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0715378570 B&w photographs. "Packed with authentic atmosphere, the retreat and the desperate lifting of the weary soldiers is seen in its tragic entirety, often through first-hand reco llections of the men who were there. The story of Dunkirk is a dramatic epic of courage and confusion, resulting in a successful and often heroic evacuation....(Harris) describes in vivid detail how the evacuation developed, on a day-by-d a y b a s i s , and destroys more than one of the myths that have come to be associated with Dunkirk. However, the spirit, humour and drama that epitomised what came to be known as the 'spirit of Dunkirk' was, and is, undeniable. Illustrated wit h ma n y co nt em po ra r y photographs, this book provides a complete historical account of the lifting of the British expeditionary force in the first week of June 1940...."
