Battle of Dunkirk 1940

The Battle of Dunkirk took place in Dunkirk (Dunkerque), France, during the Second World War between the Allies and Germany. As part of the Battle of France on the Western Front, the Battle of Dunkirk was the defence and evacuation of British and Allied forces in Europe from 26 May to 4 June 1940.

In one of the most widely debated decisions of the war, the Germans halted their advance on Dunkirk. The army was to halt for three days, which gave the Allies sufficient time to organise the Dunkirk evacuation and build a defensive line. Despite the Allies' gloomy estimates of the situation, with Britain even discussing a conditional surrender to Germany, in the end more than 330,000 Allied troops were rescued.

These 330,000 rescued Allied troops later fought and landed in Africa, Italy and Normandy.
Hitlers first resounding defeat.
