The so-called 'miracle' of Dunkirk was the saving of almost 340,000 British and Allied troops to fight another day, but it was not the final withdrawal; two further evacuations, from Le Havre and the Atlantic ports, took place over the next few weeks. As well as examining these remarkable operations, Henry Buckton's analysis recounts the events that led to them and highlights the lessons of the Battle of France that would inform the later Allied war effort.
