Book description

"1940, and Britain has been plunges into the Second World War. For Joe Read, the battles raging in France are nothing more than whispered rumours and distant gunfire until he is called up for a secret mission to the beaches of Dunkirk. What follows is a three-day adventure that Joe will never forget, and a chapter in the war that will change the course of history."
