Of course, the armada of vessels which rescued our troops from the beaches was a brave and courageous act.

But there was more to the history of Dunkirk than an evacuation mission.

Sebag-Montefiore looks at the men left behind: those who had to hold back the advance of the German attack and were told, literally, to fight to the last man.
