Arthur D. Divine
(ALLEN & UNWIN)
This reprint of Arthur D. Divine’s memoir of the events of the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940 holds weight, even among historians. In 1940, Divine, a South African war correspondent, crossed the English Channel three times in a ten-metre boat to rescue Allied troops stranded at the French port. His first-hand account of the human drama that played out during this military exercise formed the basis for the script of the movie Dunkirk.
