Book Description

As German armored columns moved to seal off French ports from retreating British troops in 1940, Winston Churchill had few reserves he could commit. In an attempt to delay the Germans at Boulogne, Churchill sent in two battalions of the Irish Guards and Welsh Guards in a hastily-organized amphibious landing. In Battleground Europe style, eyewitness accounts and original photographs provide previously unknown details. A guide is also provided to the monuments, battle sites and accommodations in this historic city as they are today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Forgotten Battle 3 Aug. 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My father served in the 2nd Btn Welsh Guards, and was here in 1940. I never really appreciated what happened there until I read this book. Well written and well researched. Highly recommended.
