Battle of Dunkirk
Anniversary Small Group Tour

5-Days / 4-Nights

Join us for our In The Footsteps® Battle of Dunkirk Anniversary Tour.

Operation DYNAMO took place between 27 May 1940 and 4 June 1940 and was the evacuation of large numbers of Belgian, British, and French troops who were cut off and surrounded by the German Blitzkrieg during the six-week Battle of France. Also known as the Miracle of Dunkirk, it saw the evacuation of 338,226 Allied soldiers from Dunkirk by a hastily assembled fleet of over 800 vessels, many of which were the ‘small ships’, in just 8-days.

The BEF lost 68,000 soldiers during the disastrous French Campaign of 1940; it abandon nearly all of its tanks, vehicles, and equipment, and in his speech “we shall fight on the beaches” on 4 June Winston Churchill told the country that “we must be very careful not to assign to this deliverance the attributes of a victory. Wars are not won by evacuations.”

Discover the incredible story behind the evacuation and pay tribute to all the allied soldiers, sailors and airmen involved in the operation and who created 'The Dunkirk Spirit', a symbol of hope and resistance.
