9780141332192: Duty Calls: Dunkirk

This gripping true-to-life story looks at the battle of Dunkirk, one of the most dramatic events of World War II

You wanted to see some action—well you're going to get it now. You're going to get it now all right.

Friday, May 24, 1940: Private Johnny Hawke, aged 16, awakens to artillery fire. Hours later, Stukas scream down from the sky. Messerschmit fighters roar towards his regiment. Trucks burst into flames. Now men and mules lay dead and dying, severed limbs twisted grotesquely as blood soaks the cobbled streets. Young Private Hawke just wants to do his duty and serve his country. But as he—and his fellow soldiers—prepare to stop the German advance, there's only one question on everyone's lips. How will they survive?
