Renowned military historian Robert Kershaw presents a groundbreaking study of the 1940 Dunkirk evacuation, offering new insight into events by focusing primarily on the German perspective. Drawing on a vast number of sources such as post-action reports, memoirs and interviews, Kershaw highlights how and why the Wehrmacht failed to stop the Allied retreat from France. Over nine chapters, he intricately charts the course of Case Yellow from inception to the infamous German halt order and the BEFs retreat.

At all turns Kershaw’s use of eyewitness testimony by French, British and German participants gives an engrossing human element to the book.
