By having a fuller picture from the German side, we learn the answers to our questions as well as a better understanding of what the larger plan was supposed to be. I was unaware that the Panzers lost over 50% of their armoured vehicles in the battles for Boulogne and Calais, before encircling Dunkirk.. The incredibly strong resistance by the French and British troops in these towns was quite heroic, especially as they had very little means of escaping the ever-tightening noose of the Wehrmacht forces.

This mentality was distilled Nazism. Describing it as Europe’s greatest problem, [William] Shirer wrote about it in his diary on the eve of the German Blitzkrieg. A fellow American war correspondent, Web Miller, had died in a rail accident, and the German press was full of stories that he had been killed by the British secret service. ‘What happens,’ writes Shirer, ‘to the inner fabric of a people when they are fed lies like this daily?’ It is a question as important today as it was when posted on 9 May 1940.One can, and certainly should, read this book whether one opts to see the film or not. Despite its link to a major Hollywood cinema event, this is a bona fide, stand-alone history of the time, an update of his 2011 book, Forgotten Voices of Dunkirk, which had inspired Nolan’s air, sea, and water triptych approach to the film. It is rich with looks at the challenges and contradictions of the era, and shows in compelling detail many of the horrors of war. Levine, Joshua (2017).
