(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.
