The battle of Dunkirk has been celebrated as one of the most extraordinary triumphs in British history. But in this astonishing book, the author shows that it was in fact a major defeat, embellished and made glorious by the British propaganda machine.

In 1940 to have believed that the rescue of the British Army from northern France was anything but a triumph would have been treason. But Dunkirk was a disaster, a terrible defeat. It was quite deliberately and brilliantly turned into a legend of victory - a heroic, glorious episode - by a government that had no other weapon with which to fight. It was a necessary myth that enabled the British to carry on the war with no weapons for their Army, and no allies. And it was created whole cloth by Churchill in an elegant campaign of propaganda and persuasion.
