BBC News – Audio slideshow: Rescue from Dunkirk

I “discovered” the Battle of Britain as part of a history curriculum subject at school. I became hooked, and over the years I’ve maintained my interest.

I’ve also become fascinated with the whole period leading up to the Battle, and as we’re now into a season of 70th anniversaries, various organisations are looking at Operation Dynamo, the evacuation of 330,000 Allied troops from Dunkerque and Calais. Today marks the first day of the operation itself, and I would like to share this audio slideshow with you.
