A very good history of the battle for the other Channel Ports - Calais, Bolounge, Dieppe and Cherbourg in 1940 rather than just the usual focus on Dunkirk. I hoped it would also look at St Nazaire and the sinking of the Lancastria but not technically a Channel port!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Never Told Tale 13 Mar. 2014
By Tony Marquise Jr. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book covers a part of World War II that is skipped by other historians. Everyone knows about Dunkirk and how the British Army was rescued there. Truth is, only half the British Army was rescued from Dunkirk-this book tells about the half of the British Army that stayed in France to fight with the French. It is NOT a nice tale. First, the French Army commander was totally lost, he did not know what was going on or how to stop the Allied rout. He was replaced by another French general who had mental problems. Truth is, the British commanders were befudled too. The higher their rank, the more confused they were. One British general did realize what was going on and finally convinced Churchill to withdraw what was left of the British Army from France before it was two late. This general was Alan Brooke. This book tells the story of this half of the British Army and the major losses it suffered. The offical British history glosses over these losses-which makes this book essential to anyone wanting to know the facts about the Battle of France 1940. As far as I know, this is the ONLY book to cover this part of the British Army in this battle.
