In the months of May/June 1940, In the French port town of Dunkirk, 400,000 British and French soldiers are holed up. The only way out is by water, and the Germans have overwhelming air power, hitting British soldiers and ships with no resistance.
The situation appears to be bad, so Britain dispatches civilian boats, in addition to its already overburdened Navy, to try to evacuate the besieged forces.
This is the narrative of one of the besieged forces, two Royal Air Force fighter pilots, and a group of civilians on their boat, which was part of the evacuation fleet.
