Dunkirk Spirit

For the first time, journalist Alan Pearce tells the incredible story of personal sacrifice and bravery both on the home front and in the front line.

Drawing on personal accounts and official histories, he dispels the common myths and gives a harrowing perspective of a great defeat and subsequent miracle seen through the eyes of ordinary people in extraordinary times.

Pearce paints a remarkable picture of life in the early days of the war with an island facing invasion while its army lay trapped on the shores of France.

Dunkirk Spirit shocks with its stark depiction of war and yet is rich in humour, tapping deep into the British character.

Heart warming and compelling, this is a book that raises the spirits, and begs the question could we ever do it again?
